Acting on the Call. Ending Preventable Child and Maternal Deaths

In 2014, USAID released the Acting on the Call Report committing to work with partners to save 15 million children and 600,000 women by 2020. This year, USAID will release an update on progress with an additional focus on the interventions needed to save women and mothers.

The Acting on the Call: Ending Preventable Child and Maternal Deaths report laid out an action plan to save an unprecedented number of women and children by 2020 in 24 priority countries. At the 2014 event of the same title, a number of new partnerships and bold reforms were announced to improve effectiveness and efficiency at USAID.

Each year, USAID will report on progress in the effort to end preventable child and maternal deaths. Check back for the 2015 Acting on the Call Report.
