African Heads of State, Government, to Speed up Reduction of Maternal Death
Heads of State and Government met during the African Union Summit and made new commitments to speed-up the reduction of maternal death and disability on the African continent. The commitments followed a high-level event they attended a day earlier, on reinforcing the Campaign on Accelerated Reduction of Maternal Mortality in Africa (CARMMA). The event was organized by the African Union Commission, with the help of UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund. Learn more at the UNFPA website.
