This 50-page evaluation report shares the work of an evaluation team tasked by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to examine the growth, influence, and results of the White Ribbon Alliance for Safe Motherhood (WRA) since its inception in 1999. The WRA is described as "a global grassroots movement for safe motherhood that builds alliances, strengthens capacity, influences policies, harnesses resources, and inspires action to sav/e women's lives everywhere." WRA is organising in countries where reducing maternal deaths would significantly accelerate the achievement of the Millennium Development Goal to reduce the maternal mortality ratio by three-quarters by 2015. In India and Tanzania alone, WRA activities are estimated to have reached over three million people.
