Description/achievement of initiative

The commitments detailed in this document build on important recent efforts, notably President Obamaís Global Health Initiative (GHI), a $63 billion initiative to help partner countries save lives and achieve sustainable health outcomes. Through the GHI, the United States will scale up efforts and achieve significant results in maternal and child health and family planning. The GHI sets out ambitious targets for improving maternal and child health to inspire an intensive effort, and will: reduce maternal mortality by 30 percent across assisted countries; reduce mortality rates for children under 5 by 35 percent across assisted countries; reduce child under-nutrition by 30 percent across assisted food insecure countries, in conjunction with the Presidentís Feed the Future Initiative; double the number of at-risk babies born HIV-free, from a baseline of 240,000 babies of HIV-positive mothers born HIV-negative during the first five years of PEPFAR; and reach a modern contraceptive prevalence rate of 35 percent across assisted countries.
