Description/achievement of initiative
As Chair of the G8, Canada made maternal, newborn and child health a priority for the G8 Muskoka Summit in June 2010. At the Muskoka Summit, Prime Minister Stephen Harper committed C$1.1billion in new and additional funding for women's and children's health as part of the Muskoka Initiative. Prime Minister Harper also confirmed renewal of existing resources of C$1.75 billion, meaning Canada will provide C$2.85 billion for MNCH by 2015. Canada will focus its efforts on improving the services and care needed to ensure healthy pregnancies and safe delivery, and placing a particular emphasis on meeting the nutritional needs of pregnant women, mothers, newborns and young children. Canada will work to increase access to the high-impact, cost-effective interventions that address the leading killers of children under the age of five. Canada will also commit an additional $540 million over three years to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. This is in addition to a total of $978.4 million that Canada has committed and disbursed to the Global Fund since 2002.
Implementation methodologies
Canada will provide funding for women's and children's health, and will focus its efforts on improving the services and care needed to ensure healthy pregnancies and safe delivery. For additional information, please refer to Canada International Development Agency, Multilateral and Global Programs
