Global Goals, Global Strategy Will Guide Progress To Reduce Maternal, Child Mortality, WHO Commentary Says

WHO: No magic bullet, but no excuses: we know what works for women’s and girls’ health
In this commentary, Marleen Temmerman, director of the WHO Department of Reproductive Health and Research, writes, “While there is no magic bullet, there are also no excuses. Over the past two decades, we have seen a significant decline in maternal and child mortality, but much remains to be done. We must stand behind the new Global Goals for sustainable development and the Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s, and Adolescents’ Health and implement what works. Each one of us can be part of transformational change” (9/25).
