G20 Can Turn Attention To Maternal And Child Health At Upcoming Meeting

In a post in Forbes’s “Mitch2Maya/Mothers2Mothers” blog, contributors Mitch Besser and Maya Kulycky write that the Group of 20 (G20) “have plenty to discuss at their upcoming November meeting — and a lot of it is pretty scary.” They raise the issues of the global economy and its impact on public health, specifically maternal and newborn health, writing, “The G20 … can turn their attention to maternal and child health, helping the world to be a more productive and less scary place.” They conclude, “We have a chance if we can reach the ground with meaningful interventions that translate what is possible into what is actual” (10/30).
