G8 Leaders Commit to Improving Maternal and Child Health

The Group of 8 (G8) leaders stepped up their commitment to reducing maternal and child deaths at last month’s summit in Italy. Their final declaration calls for a global consensus on maternal, newborn, and child health, citing the importance of community leadership and engagement in these health areas, of the removal of barriers to all women’s and children’s access to services, of skilled health workers, and of accountability for results. EngenderHealth joins the public health community in welcoming this new pledge and calls on world leaders to ensure that they follow their words with action.
