Global Strategy for Women and Children Health. United Nations. (2015)


Every year around 8 million children die of preventable causes, and more than 350,000 women die from preventable complications related to pregnancy and childbirth. If we bridge the gaps detailed in this document, the gains will be enormous. Reaching the targets for MDG 4 (a two-thirds reduction in under-five mortality) and MDG 5 (a three-quarters reduction in maternal mortality and universal access to reproductive health) would mean saving the lives of 4 million children and about 190,000 women in 2015 alone. 

Keywords: HIV/AIDS, PMTCT, MDGs, women, adolescent girls, newborns, infants, children
