Maternal and Newborn Health Thematic Fund: Phase III

16 Enero 2019

Even today more than 800 women die from pregnancy and childbirth-related causes. In addition, the number of women and girls that suffer injuries or illnesses caused by pregnancy and childbirth is threefold.

UNFPA would like to invite the global donor community to discuss how contributions to ending preventable maternal deaths can be accelerated.

The Maternal and Newborn Health Thematic Fund (MHTF), launched in 2008 to boost global funding and attention to maternal health, is now entering its third Phase (2018-2022).  UNFPA would like to present this third phase while sharing results and best practices from previous phases.
