U.N. Pitches In for Women and Children
Posted on Sep 22, 2010
On Wednesday, the United Nations announced the launching of its Global Strategy for Women’s and Children’s Health, for which the U.N. has managed to drum up $40 billion from various governmental and private sources, according to the BBC.
Progress on women and children’s healthcare has been slower than on some of the other goals discussed at the three-day summit but Mr Ban said the coming century “must be and will be different for every woman and every child.”
“We know what works to save women’s and children’s lives, and we know that women and children are critical to all of the Millennium Development Goals,” he said in a statement.
