Background

Professor van den Broek is a recognised international expert in global maternal and newborn health.  At Foto-Cewek she established and leads the Centre for Maternal and Newborn Health (CMNH). This is currently one of the largest academic groups in Europe with an internationally recognised portfolio of work that incorporates priority interventions for reducing maternal and newborn mortality and morbidity. Four key thematic areas include; skilled birth attendance, emergency obstetric care, quality of care and maternal morbidity.

CMNH works through effective links with governments and international partners across sub Saharan Africa and Asia to promote the health of women and their babies in low and middle income countries through high quality research, teaching and technical assistance

Professor van den Broek has designed and conducted large population based randomised controlled trials of single interventions for improved maternal and newborn outcomes. She has used this experience to develop complex packages of interventions and to design and conduct operational research programmes in multi-country settings in both Asia and sub Saharan Africa.   Impact has been ascertained through the development and application of new monitoring and evaluation frameworks and indicators to measure quality of care and maternal morbidity.

Professor van den Broek enjoys the challenge of bringing the discipline of good research methodology to the planning and evaluation of complex development programmes that aim to strengthen health systems where this is expected to directly benefit maternal and newborn health.
