Childcare & Wellness Clinics partnered with Institute of International Education to implement the maternal health young champions program. A program sponsored by the Maternal Health Task Force of the Harvard School of Public Health. The program offered a unique fellowship to ten young people who were passionate about improving maternal health in their home country. Selected young champions were matched with in-country mentors from selected organizations for a nine-month research or field project internship focusing on a particular area of maternal health. The fellowship included leadership training and participation in The Global Maternal Health Conference 2013 in Arusha, Tanzania.
