Can’t talk about #womenshealth w/o mentioning #maternal death -unfortunately on the rise in does one of the richest countries have the highest rate of maternal & infant mortality?🧵… @acog @ACOGPregnancy
We have high c-sx rates, low prenatal care, high chronic disease rates in our mothers. Post-partum care is a single visit at 6 weeks. Working pregnant moms may opt to induce labor for the 'convenience' of optimizing their leave...
Speaking of leave, the US is the one of the ONLY industrialized countries to NOT have ANY paid parental leave. If that doesn't reveal value in a society, I don't know what does. Punchline: the value isn't in family. No wonder our divorce rates and rates of mental health and……

This mornings rant will be correcting how leaders should address the mom from MA w/ #postpartum #psychosis who killed her kids

#1: "district attorney said the incident was an unimaginable, senseless tragedy."

No it's not - we know this social issue.🧵…
In fact, #postpartum depression not only is the number one killer of birthing parents - it is killing us in the long term too - 20% of deaths in the postpartum period are due to #Suicides

U.S. policies that hate families and women perpetuate this obvi.…
#2: "Authorities have not said whether they're looking {postpartum psychosis} as a factor in her alleged crimes, but "It does seem like a pretty classic case of postpartum depression with potential psychosis,"

Our paper is out!
Current #adaptation projects do not automatically enhance #gender equality | need to be intentionally brought in at planning & implementation stages.

23authors|9sectors|17739 literature|countless meetings

Delighted to have brainstormed👇figure with @Joyashree9
Embedding gender considerations and facilitating #women’s participation in project design and implementation along with #inclusive #policies, training, information access, planning, and monitoring is needed
Additional course correction for #SDG5 is needed.
Our #SDG5plus (SDG5+) approach takes into consideration #intersectionality and gender aspects beyond #women alone, & can help #adaptation actions move towards meeting #genderequality and other #climatejustice goals.

March 2021, UN: "the disruption to #health services provision & access & the rising #food insecurity could lead to additional 253,500 – 1,157,000 #child #deaths & 12,200 – 56,700 #maternal deaths, globally."

"As a result of these disruptions in South Asia, #child #mortality could potentially increase by 18–40% & maternal mortality by 14–52%, over the next year."

1/1 We cld turn to the literature for guidance?? 👉 This team found that the lack of exposure to #vaginal microbiota is unlikely to be a major contributing factor to neonatal dysbiosis...:… ImageImage
2/2 ...Instead, indication for #Cesarean delivery, intrapartum antibiotic administration, absence of labor, differences in #breastfeeding behaviors, #maternal obesity + gestational age were major drivers of the Cesarean delivery microbial phenotype.
Plus if studies like this hold - which suggest that components of the infant #microbiome develop in the #womb -the the data generated by these upcoming “vaginal seeding”’trials may very well become meaningless:… ImageImage

Today, I will try my hand at live tweeting insights from "A #Home of One's Own", a two-day #researchworkshop on socially & economically #marginalised women's experiences of and negotiations with #genderinequalities in #informalurbanhousing in India.
This workshop has been organised by #JadavpurUniversity (School of Women's Studies), #RabindraBharathiUniversity (Centre for Women's Studies) and #Parichiti, a women's organisation. All three are research partners on a #GCRF project funded by @GoldsmithsUoL.
Since Oct 2018, I have collaborated with Dr. Henrike Donner, who is leading it, to develop #researchcollaborations with #educational and #development organisations in India to implement a pilot study on #genderurbanhousing. This workshop marks the end of the first phase.

Let's talk about "national emergencies."
There are THOUSANDS of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women in this country. Sisters, daughters, mothers, human beings that disappear without a trace. Where is the declaration over that crisis? #MMIW #MMIWG #MMIR
In a country determined to place nationalism at the forefront of domestic and foreign policy, we have a shocking number of homeless veterans. In states like Arizona, the number of #veteran suicides is 90.4 per 100,000.…

Even as HIV/AIDS-related deaths have reached lowest level of this century, new @UNAIDS report… notes that we're NOT on track to reach 2020 global goals for reducing #HIV deaths.
We believe reductions in mortality cannot be taken for granted with treatment scale-up. Deaths must be tracked at the subnational, and program-level in order to ensure program performance. This is especially impt as we implement @WHO advanced HIV care guidelines and #diff care
To do this, we must step up efforts to trace lost patients and document true outcomes, including causes of death, and track new indicators for death. Investments in #CRVS (Civil registration and vital statistics) and networked information systems are also on the critical path
