Filling the need for trusted information on national health issues

Reflecting On Women Deliver Conference

“I’ve just returned from an inspiring and thought-provoking week in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where leaders and advocates from 149 countries gathered for the Women Deliver 2013 conference,” Robert Clay, deputy assistant to the administrator for USAID’s global health bureau, writes in USAID’s “IMPACTblog.” He continues, “Over the past decade, we’ve seen wonderful success in reductions of maternal and child deaths and improved access to family planning. But despite all the good we have done, millions around the globe still do not receive the reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health services they need.” He concludes, “After a week of renewed commitments, sharing lessons learned, and listening to those pioneering the way forward on women’s health and rights, I feel inspired to do my part in leading USAID to achieve our global health goals and improve women’s and girl’s health and rights across the globe” (6/3).
