This webinar features Catholic Relief Services’ project, “The health of the family is also men’s work” that is transforming communities through the education of fathers. Pregnant women are at risk of poor prenatal care and abuse which impacts safe delivery and newborn health. Through life-affirming education and training men are gaining new appreciation for pregnant wives and actively supporting them during pregnancy and with their newborn babies. This model may be adapted across cultural boundaries.
The webinar will feature Dr. Elena McEwan, MD. Since 2006, Dr. McEwan has served as the Senior Technical Adviser in Maternal and Child Health and the technical backstop to maternal and child health (MCH) projects for Catholic Relief Service. She is a physician by training, and received her pediatric degree in Nicaragua, her native country in 1995. Her primary purpose is to provide global leadership to CRS’ maternal and child health programming. Dr. McEwan also coordinates and provides technical support to CRS’ awarded MCH grants. More specifically she provides technical assistance to develop the Detailed Implementation Plans, Social and Behavior Change Strategies, Evaluations and Operations Research. She also represents CRS’ MCH portfolio in global forums such as the GAVI Alliance and the CoreGroup.
