    Global Maternal Health Conference 2013 This session brought together experts ranging from politics to private entities to providers themselves. MNCH provided an opportunity to link services in a seamless fashion for women's health care, and yet there are many pieces of this puzzle that don't quite fit. With various players reviewing MNCH (including the clients, community, government and advocacy agencies) MNCH stands for different things, such as advocacy, a place at the table in the political realm, and finally how it integrates into direct healthcare. Pieces of MNCH seem to be missing however, such as reproductive health, adolescent health, sexual health, HIV, abortion and violence. While some say MNCH may have helped within the advocacy field, it remains to be proven the advances that MNCH has had on the ground level, especially in regards to how the concept of MNCH relates to the provider and client.

      Adolescent girls are particularly vulnerable. Helping them to build assets and skills can give them more options to negotiate in their lives, importantly around the prevention of unwanted pregnancy and protection against sexually transmitted diseases like HIV. Learn more about the effects of economic strengthening interventions on adolescent girls’ economic empowerment and health outcomes in this webinar. Hosted by SEEP's Children, Youth and Economic Strengthening Network and Learning Platform, this webinar was an activity associated with the recently launched Household Economic Strengthening Research Dialogues Initiative. This webinar featured leading experts from FHI 360, the International Food Policy Research Institute, and the Population Council. It drew on the FHI 360 ASPIRES project’s evaluation of social and economic empowerment interventions to reduce adolescent girls’ vulnerability to HIV in Mozambique; DFID’s recent review of the evidence on investments in adolescent girls’ physical and financial assets and its relation to health outcomes; and the Population Council’s newly published evaluation report around safe and smart savings products for vulnerable adolescent girls in Kenya and Uganda.

        Global Maternal Health Conference 2013 This session focused on the 40% decline in maternal mortality in Bangladesh. This panel sought to learn why in spite of SBAs and ANC services, while not at the level suggested for MDG5 success, Bangladesh is still on the road to achieve MDG5 reduced maternal mortality rates. This session focused on programs by the government, NGOs and other agencies, specifically BRAC and ACCESS/MCHIP, all which led the way towards reduced maternal mortality in ways other than scaling up SBAs and ANC services.

                      Mondulkiri province in Northeast Cambodia is rich in forest and natural resources. It is also home to Bunong indigenous communities who depend on these resources for their subsistance. Non-timber forest product or NTFP's are viewed as key means not only to improve the livelihood of the Bunong but also to ensure their direct participation in the conservation of over a million hectares of the remaining forest area of Mondulkiri.
