Opportunities for Business to Improve Women’s and Children’s Health - A short guide for companies

This document highlights a broad range of specific and practical opportunities for improving the health of women and children while also generating value for private enterprise. We call this “shared value”. It provides information about the health needs of women and children in developing and emerging economies to help companies identify where they can have the greatest impact. Private Enterprise for Public Health aspires to catalyse a collective approach to creating transformative partnerships to help to save the lives of 16 million women and children. These partnerships need to be sustainable and scalable and include a broad range of stakeholders to make lasting progress.
