The Lancet is organizing its virtual Global Launch of the Lancet Series on Women's and Children's Health in Conflict Settings on January 25th, 2021. 


Organizer: The Lancet 


Event description: 

The Series aim to improve understanding of and address the special requirements of providing sexual, reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health and nutrition services in conflict settings. The Series draws upon scholarship from the BRANCH Consortium, providing insights into the nature and dynamics of women’s and children’s health and nutrition in diverse conflict contexts globally.
