Global Call to Leaders and other donors
We do not need a new cure to save the lives of 6 million women and children. What we need is political leadership and investment. An additional $US10.2 billion is needed yearly to provide basic health services for women, newborns and children in developing countries: That is what the world spends every 2.5 days on military expenditures.
In April 2008 The Partnership for Maternal, Newborn & Child Health issued a Global Call to Leaders and other donors, which was developed by the Partnership in collaboration with its 260 member organizations around the world.
From the Partnership website, we urge you to "Play your Part", join partners and sign the Global Call to Leaders and other donors.
