When I arrived in PMNCH January 2011, I said at a staff meeting ‘this is my passion and my dream job’. I meant it then, and it still holds true. Whoever takes over as Executive Director will take on one of the most exciting jobs in global health and development. In the last 45 months, it has been a roller coaster ride of collective achievement, with partners, and staff, pushing all of us faster and further for women and children. So, I could have done a long list of these collective achievements, and might yet. Or I could have done a list of remaining challenges, but these are well known. Or a list of heartfelt ‘thank yous’, but there is not enough space for this exceedingly long list.
