UN Commission on Life-Saving Commodities
Two years on, the Commission’s recommendations have translated into specific measures to support countries in their efforts to make these essential commodities more widely available to those who need them most, and to address global and regional RMNCH challenges. The follow-up to the Commission’s recommendations is undertaken under the UN Secretary General’s Every Woman Every Child banner where together with other RMNCH initiatives, it contributes to deepening progress towards Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) 4 and 5.
