THE MAF VALUE ADDED FOR MATERNAL HEALTH  Changing the prevailing political thinking: maternal health is more than a health issue, it’s a development challenge (provide evidence to show the strong linkages between MDG 5 and other MDGs). Economic feasibility: investment returns are high – productivity implications. Identifying most effective actions in sectors (including non-health sectors) that could contribute to accelerating maternal health. Engage sectors on how to implement these actions within their mandate. Identify and provide incremental funding for these actions when needed. |
