Partnership for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health Forum (PMNCH)
takes place from 30. June – 01 July in South Africa
Graça Machel returned to her active role as a global advocate for women’s and children’s rights as chairperson of PMNCH.
She appealed to global leaders to make efforts to ensure that every pregnant mother and newborns lived.
“We need to have a world in which there are no preventable deaths of newborns or stillbirths, where ever pregnancy is wanted, every birth is celebrated and mothers, babies and children thrive and reach their social and economic potential”, she added.
