“Our goal must be a world in which good health is a pillar of individual well-being, national progress, and international stability and peace. This cannot be achieved without partnerships involving governments, international organizations, the business community, and civil society.”

— Kofi A. Annan, ex-Secretary-General of the United Nations

Healthy mothers and children are the bedrock of healthy societies. Millions of mothers and children suffer and die each year, yet application of existing knowledge could save the lives of millions of women and children. Together we can bring about improved lives for women and children in Latin America and the Caribbean.
