USAID Newsletter Focuses On Maternal, Child Health
USAID’s “Global Health News”: Healthy Beginnings
USAID’s August 2018 newsletter focuses on maternal and child health. “The 1,000 days from a woman’s pregnancy through her child’s second birthday offer a tremendous opportunity to build healthier and more prosperous futures for both mothers and their babies. … By focusing on improving maternal and child health and nutrition and reducing disease during the critical first 1,000 days, USAID helps children grow into strong, productive citizens and promotes more stable, self-reliant societies…” (August 2018).
