New Poverty Matters Blog on UN Maternal Mortality Goals

The Guardian’s Poverty Matters blog has written an interesting piece on the new UN maternal mortality goals for 2015, which we had previously blogged about when they were launched in September.

The article highlights that this new strategy is different from previous initiatives in that it has garnered significant commitments not only from traditional donors such as the G8 but a large number of governments of developing countries, such as Afghanistan and Niger.

The article also highlights the latest developments: the prime minister of Canada and the president of Tanzania have been appointed as co-chairs of the commission of 25 global leaders who will steer the efforts.  This group will issue a final report outlining the recommended course of action to the UN General Assembly in September 2011.

We continue to monitor the promising developments out of the UN’s initiative and will keep you updated on the Saving Mother’s blog.
