Accountability for Women’s and Children’s Health

The UN Global Strategy for Women's and Children's Health

The ‘Global Strategy for Women’s and Children’s Health’ sets out how we can work together to save women and children. The document was developed under the auspices of the United Nations Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, with support and facilitation by The Partnership for Maternal, Newborn & Child Health.

The Global Strategy was launched at the time of the UN Leaders’ Summit for the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in 2010, with some US $ 40 billion pledged towards women’s and children’s health and the achievement of MDGs 4 & 5 – to reduce child mortality and improve maternal health.
