Our #CommunityMNH supplement - a tweet chat celebrating its launch!

The journal Health Policy and Planning published a unique supplement looking at the first multi-country economic analyses of large scale community care for mothers and newborns.


  1. We held a Tweetchat to give everyone including researchers, parents and organisations, such as Healthy Newborn Network and Makerere University Centre of Excellence, a chance to discuss some of the key issues raised in the supplement.

    On Tuesday 3rd October, 2017, we published the questions we wanted to discuss, an infographic showing key facts and figures about premature births around the world and then published the #CommunityMNH supplement in Health Policy and Planning,

    We invited key experts to take part - Professor Joy Lawn from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (@Joylawn), Stefan Peterson (@stefanswartpet) Chief of Health, UNICEF, Diana Bargar (@dianabarger) from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine who was also with Emmanuelle Daviaud, senior health economist from @SAMRC and Tedbabe Degefie (@TedbabeDegefie) from UNICEF Ethiopia.
  2. The tweetchat started with the question of what prompted this research more than 10 years ago and what is new?
  3. Question 2 led on to what the most important findings of the supplement were.
  4. Some of these findings are summarised within this infographic.
  5. The papers mentioned below are all available at bit.ly/CommunityMNH.
