family planning + maternal & newborn care = saved lives
More than a thousand women a day die unnecessarily from pregnancy and childbirth -- almost all of them in the developing world.
And vast productivity -- $15 billion a year -- is lost when these women die or get disabled as a result pregnancy or childbirth.
We know the steps it would take to prevent most of that death and disability. To improve the lives of women, children and communities.
Total cost = about $4.50 for each person in the developing world.
