With America unique among developed and most developing countries in its rising maternal mortality, it's especially encouraging to see significant progress in mothers' and newborn survival in sites across the developing world.
The massive global effort to achieve the Millennium Development Goals made enormous strides in reducing maternal and newborn mortality worldwide. Together with other non-governmental organizations (NGOs), WomenStrong International has focused on maternal and neonatal survival as a vital first step toward furthering the health and economic empowerment of women, families and whole communities. Our projects in Haiti, Ghana, India and elsewhere illustrate the very real progress being made across the developing world, even as our own country falls far behind.
