Global call for G8 Leaders

At the request of the Advocacy Working Group which met end January 2008, The Partnership has prepared a draft: "Global call for G8 Leaders and other donors to champion maternal, newborn and child health" . This draft document and accompanying evidence base, which have been extensively commented on during the past two months, are now before the Partnership's Board in order to secure agreement for its public release. The possibility of launching the global call at the upcoming Countdown to 2015 conference in Cape Town from 17-19 April 2008 is under discussion.
