Note for the record report - New York
United Nations partners meeting on maternal health, New York, 13 September 2006
The "Note for the record report" aims to chronicle ways to improve United Nations agency coordination/ partnership and identify areas for improvement, especially in relation to country support. The publication reports on the follow-up meeting to the Stockholm meeting on maternal health which had taken place on 21−22 June 2006 and had been jointly organized by the WHO Department of Making Pregnancy Safer (MPS) and Sweden. At this meeting of donors and United Nations agencies, donors recommended that the UN agencies form a common framework of understanding on their roles and responsibilities at the country level to better align and harmonize support to countries. As a result, an interagency meeting was called to discuss how the agencies can best collaborate in maternal and newborn health.
