U.K.’s DFID Falls Short On Maternal Health, Family Planning Work, Independent Review Says

Devex: Aid watchdog accuses DFID of exaggerating maternal health impacts
“The United Kingdom’s work on maternal health and family planning has fallen short of expectations and the Department for International Development may have exaggerated the number of lives saved through its work, according to an aid watchdog. The Independent Commission for Aid Impact, an independent body that scrutinizes the U.K.’s aid budget, released its review of DFID’s maternal health efforts on Tuesday. It found that the aid department has not done enough to reach the most vulnerable women and girls, and that some of its programs have prioritized short-term access gains over quality and sustainability…” (Edwards, 10/30).
