Women Deliver Conference Launches New Commitments
Date:10/20/2007

s reproductive health worldwide; a US$11 million investment by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation in distributing new technology against blood loss after childbirth in Nigeria and India; and a commitment from Japan to put global health at the centre of the Group of Eight summit meeting in Japan next year.

Pledges of further action also came from the David & Lucile Packard Foundation, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the International Labour Organisation, the United Nations Foundation, UNICEF, Exxon/Mobil, and GlaxoSmithKline.

Advocates for women's health should seek to work both within governments and as non-governmental organization activists, said Dr. Helene Gayle, president of CARE. "We need people both on the inside and the outside to figure out how to work together to get these things to happen," she said. "NGOs can't do it by themselves."

Earlier commitments to the goals of Women Deliver included pledges of US$1 billion from Norway for the Global Campaign for the Health MDGs, (http://www.norad.no) an initiative to secure achievement of the MDGs to improve child health and reduce disease, as well as the maternal health goal. The Netherlands pledged 125 million Euros (about US$178 million) for gender equality and maternal health, and Denmark pledged 110 million kroner (US$21 million) for HIV/AIDS and reproductive health.

"Increased and dependable financing would make a big difference in saving the half a million mothers who die each year in pregnancy or when giving birth," said Morten Wetland, secretary of state for Norway's Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg.

"All national, regional and international leaders must recognize that the achievement of the MDGs as a whole, and improvement of health systems more broadly, depend largely on achieving MDGs 4 and 5," the ministers' statement said.
