MatCHNet showcase event

Thursday 6 June, Edinburgh (10-4pm)

**Registration now open - deadline 27 May**

Please join us to celebrate the work of the Maternal and Child Health Network (MatCHNet) at our in-person showcase event on Thursday 6 June (10-4pm) at the Quaker Meeting House, Edinburgh (EH1 2JL).

Over the past 4 years, our network has come together to prioritise upstream policy interventions, map administrative data, and identify complex methodology required to undertake cross-national comparative studies to improve child health outcomes.

This event will be a wonderful opportunity to:

• connect with colleagues across the network;

• learn about MatCHNet’s work;

• contribute to discussions about future research in the early years.

Event programme

Our planned sessions include:

• Showcasing MatCHNet pump priming projects
• Discussion of policy priorities for maternal and child health
• Future evaluations of policies impacting child and maternal health

About us: Funded by the UK Prevention Research Partnership (UKPRP), MatCHNet has established and continues to grow a multidisciplinary, community of researchers, methodologists, policy makers and service providers to develop understanding of upstream social and environmental policy variations that potentially impact upon child and maternal health. MatCHNet focuses on bringing together three key areas: policy mapping and prioritisation; administrative data sources; and robust evaluation methods.

Venue: The Quaker Meeting House, Edinburgh (7 Victoria Terrace, Edinburgh EH1 2JL). The venue is a 10-minute walk from Edinburgh Waverley station.

If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

We look forward to meeting you in Edinburgh!
