Description/achievement of initiative

CARE commits $1.8 billion over the next 5 years to expand successful maternal, newborn and child health programs, with a focus on empowering girls and women to increase gender equity, linking health systems and communities in systems of mutual accountability, and using innovative approaches to reach the most vulnerable populations. By expanding its maternal health programs into at least 10 additional countries—a 50 percent increase—and by scaling-up programs in countries where it currently operates, CARE aims to aid more than 30 million women of reproductive age by the 2015 Millennium Development Goals deadline.
