“……- In only one year, governments, foundations, UN and other multilateral organizations, NGOs, the business community, health care professional associations, and academic institutions have made unprecedented financial and political commitments to greatly improve the health of women and children.
The assessment of commitments came in the new PMNCH 2011 Report: Analysing Commitments to Advance the Global Strategy for Women’s and Children’s Health. The new Report—along with many new commitments—were released at the Every Woman Every Child first-year anniversary high-level event held in
Topics of analysis for this report include:
· the number of stakeholders, from different constituency groups, who have made commitments to advance the Global Strategy;
· the estimated value of the financial contributions made, including the extent of new and additional resources and projected government health spending on reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health (RMNCH) through 2015 in 16 low-income countries;
· the focus and scope of policy and service- delivery commitments made to date, including the use of innovation to catalyse progress;
· the geographic distribution of commitments, mapped against current progress on Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) 4 and 5 in low- and middle-income countries;
· the alignment of commitments with idenitified gaps in human resources for health, the coverage of essential RMNCH interventions, and integration with other MDGs; and
· the extent to which commitments relate to promoting human rights, equity and empowerment, addressing structural and political barriers that impede progress.
