The PMNCH Board met for its 10th Board meeting, electing Ms Purnima Mane, Deputy Executive Director of UNFPA, as the new Co-Chair and approving a new 2012-15 PMNCH Strategic Framework. Another major decision was the addition of a new private sector constituency, to formalise current engagement, particularly in the context of the Global Strategy for Women’s and Children’s Health. Several new Board members, announced in March 2011, also attended their first PMNCH Board meeting.
