MHC continues to highlight key policy issues that inform Ghana’s commitment towards reducing maternal mortality and improving child health. In 2008, maternal deaths was declared a ‘national’ emergency’. Since then, there have been concerted efforts to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by 2015. Time is short and unfortunately the goals may not be met. The policy focus is reproductive health and family planning with revealing insights by Professor Fred Sai. We also hear powerful voices from a cross section of Ghanaian society calling for an end to maternal deaths and improved health for all women and children. Don’t miss it.
