Status of initiative: N/a
Description/achievement of initiative

The Youth at School (Y@S) represented at the GSF2011 (Edinburgh, September 8th, 2011) commit to raise awareness, among at least 30,000 of our peers and 300,000 members of our wider communities in Scotland, of the avoidable mortality among mothers and babies in low-income countries and of the Global Strategy, and to fund-raise for charities working directly to reduce this unacceptable burden. We commit to being part of the global community of Y@S and to add our voice to those of our peers in low-income countries in calling for action to ensure adolescent girls can avoid early pregnancy, and mothers and babies can remain alive and healthy.
