Improving Maternal & Newborn Health & Nutrition
Providing quality healthcare and nutritional support for all women and babies is a small price to pay for a healthy generation.
While significant advances have been made in maternal and newborn health, an estimated 300,000 girls and women still die due to pregnancy related complications every year. We must collectively do more to ensure comprehensive investments in maternal and newborn health and nutrition are prioritized across political agendas.
This means investing in health services before, during, and after pregnancy and increasing access to the nutrition needed for essential physical growth and cognitive development. These investments create a ripple effect boosting education, health, and economic outcomes that advance gender equality and development.
This month, Deliver for Good explores stories and solutions for improving maternal and newborn health and nutrition.
