COVID-19 Maternal and Child Health Research Digest

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation MNCH Discovery & Tools team is dedicated to improving birth outcomes for mothers and newborns. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues across the globe, the extent of its impact on vulnerable populations, including pregnant women, newborns and children under five, is unknown. As the pandemic evolves rapidly, relevant literature is becoming available via peer-reviewed and grey literature channels. The START team has been tasked to compile weekly digests summarizing newly available pregnancy- and young child-related literature on COVID-19.
