Reducing health inequities for socially disadvantaged pregnant women and their infants and increasing access to affordable quality reproductive services is a pressing concern in many countries. This webinar reviews studies examining this problem and recommendations to address it, primarily focusing on high-income countries. Special attention will be given to the role of midwifery and community-based programs in reducing poor health outcomes among structurally-marginalized women facing multiple social inequities.
