Measuring coverage of essential maternal and newborn care interventions: An unfinished agendaThis article introduces the Journal of Global Health‘s “Measuring coverage of essential maternal and newborn care interventions: An unfinished agenda” collection.

With the increasing focus on the need for data on newborns, and availability of new data, it is time to understand these data and take stock of the findings but also of gaps. In the current context in which newborn survival is central to the global health agenda, there is an urgent need to strengthen the collection of data on newborn care, particularly on aspects related to quality of care and to identify remaining gaps as well as ensure the data are aligned with global and national monitoring needs. Attuned to this context, the series of papers in this collection provide program and policy findings on measurement of maternal and newborn care and outcomes, with implications for future measurement implementation and research.
