3 October 2014 | Washington - There has been progress in improving the health situation of women and children in the region of the Americas and the world, but there is much left to do, said Carmen Barroso, Regional Director of International Planned Parenthood Federation, Western Hemisphere Region (IPPF/WHR), and one of nine members of the independent Expert Review Group (iERG). Barroso presented the findings from the 2014 iERG report, Every Woman, Every Child: a Post-2015 Vision, during PAHO’s 53rd Directing Council.
21 September 2014 | NEW YORK - "Health should be at the centre of sustainable development. Accountability will be an important part of the new development agenda", proclaimed Ban Ki-moon in May, 2014. What mechanisms will the post-2015 era offer to advance and sustain progress in women's and children's health?
The iERG reflects on this in the new 2014 report Every Woman, Every Child: a Post-2015 Vision. This third out of four iERG's reports proposes a radical new vision to advance RMNCH and accountability before and after the end of the MDGs.
8 March 2014 - On International Women's Day, we, the members of the independent Expert Review Group on Women's and Children's Health, call on all leaders to work to create comprehensive policies, regulations, laws, and substantial investments to redress political, economic, and social inequities for women, adolescents and children.
On this day, we invite all of us to keep sexual and reproductive health and rights at the top of the international health and development agenda.
A just world depends on fulfilling the rights of women, adolescents and children.
The achievement of those rights will be a benefit to all peoples.
