dc.description.abstractBACKGROUND: The health of women and children are critical for global development. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) agenda and the Global Strategy for Women's, Children's, and Adolescent's Health 2016-2030 aim to reduce maternal and newborn deaths, disability, and enhancement of well-being. However, information and data on measuring countries' progress are limited given the variety of methodological challenges of measuring care around the time of birth, when most maternal and neonatal deaths and morbidities occur. MAIN BODY: In 2015, the World Health Organization launched Mother and Newborn Information for Tracking Outcomes and Results (MoNITOR), a technical advisory group to WHO. MoNITOR comprises 14 independent global experts from a variety of disciplines selected in a competitive process for their technical expertise and regional representation. MoNITOR will provide technical guidance to WHO to ensure harmonized guidance, messages, and tools so that countries can collect useful data to track progress toward achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. SHORT CONCLUSION: Ultimately, MoNITOR will provide technical guidance to WHO to ensure harmonized guidance, messages, and tools so that countries can collect useful data to track progress toward achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
