Need: What are the critical, but neglected, health care needs for women and children in your country?

Dear all,

I am gathering information on resources and networking contacts in neonatal and women’s health. I would love to hear from you on what you think are the greatest health care issues for women and children in your country. I am specifically interested in hearing about low-cost health technologies. What health technologies are currently being used to address these needs? Is the need successfully being addressed by the technology, or not? Please feel free to elaborate on your comments. Many thanks for your time.

All best,
