Keeping Our Promises to Women and Children
Roadblocks to Ending Maternal and Child Deaths
Huffington Post "Child mortality rates have fallen in all regions of the world in the last two decades -- down by at least 50 percent in Eastern Asia, Northern Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, South-eastern Asia and Western Asia. Maternal mortality has nearly halved since 1990.But it's too soon to pat ourselves on the back and say job well done. Despite these gains, the majority of developing countries are still expected to fall short of the MDG targets for reducing maternal and child mortality by 2015," writes Carole Presern for the Huffington Post.
