    Global Maternal Health Conference 2013 This session began with Lim's discussion on the voucher system in Cambodia and how they organize, identify, and distribute those vouchers. Lim also showed how the use of vouchers increased uptake in use of services and how they contributed towards the reduction of morbidity. Yoshimura presented JICA's work in Bangladesh where they implemented a Safe Motherhood Promotion Project. Results included increased ANC rates as well as increased deliveries in institutions and with skilled attendants. Barnighausen's study sought to learn more about how to increase ANC visits (especially in regards to PMTCT) by using Community Health Workers in Tanzania. They found that CHW visits were well-accepted from the community and that it can be easily absorbed into work that is already done at the community level.

        Global Maternal Health Conference 2013 This session had 3 presentations as Khademi was not present for the session. Oraka started the session by describing a study to better understand the pregnancy intentions and contraception knowledge and use by HIV positive and negative women involved in the PMTCT program at a hospital in Nigeria. They found that family planning programs were a success within the hospital, but more could be done to improve the uptake of family planning practices. Doreen presented on the work in Uganda where her study aimed to assess perceived PNC benefits and quality perceptions among women of reproductive age in order to inform the delivery of services to improve utilization. She found that there was a low uptake of PNC services and knowledge of the importance of PNC visits. Increased funding and support was encouraged for PNC services. Sharmin's presentation focused on the women of Bangladesh and their health seeking behaviors of the maternal deaths due to hemorrhage, eclampsia and hepatic failure so that they could identify gaps of the intervention to establish an effective service delivery system.

              At some point in each of our lives, we have all had a teacher affect us in an incredibly positive way. And sometimes we wonder where we would be today without them. This piece is the latest collaboration with the Gates Foundation to bring this concept to life, while sprinkling in a little bit of magic along the way.
