Global Strategy commitments

An estimated US$40 billion has been pledged to advance the Secretary-General’s Global Strategy on women’s and children’s health. The financial commitments to the Global Strategy  will help ensure progress is made on women and children’s health by the MDG deadline of 2015. The pledges have come from over 40 countries and a number of CSOs, foundations and the private sector.

How much of the financial pledges constitutes new money remains a little unclear, but whatever, it is still a sizeable investment. Let’s hope that the funding combined with the political will has the impact in intend and makes a real difference to achieving MDGs 4 and 5.
