Reproductive maternal neonatal and adolescent health in time of pandemics: lessons learned and practical guidance

The findings noted that responses to such outbreaks had hurt maternal, reproductive and child health services. Recognising how, and how much, epidemics affect women, children, and other vulnerable populations is crucial if nations are to create effective and fair responses.
