A landmark global conference in London this October aims to halt the needless deaths of 10 million women and girls who die in each generation during pregnancy and childbirth, and four million newborn babies who die every year. These tragic deaths are a major contributor to poverty around the world, and can be easily prevented with effective, low-cost investments.
At the Women Deliver conference, more than 2,000 participants will look at new and proven ways to save these lives. In addition to looking at strategies to change the ways how health information and services are
provided and funded, the conference will tackle other key issues, including poverty reduction, women's human rights, and economic development.
