Reducing child mortality and maternal health is possible if the world doubled investment in family planning and pregnancy-related cares.
This is the key message of the UNFPA recent report.
The speakers will present how by, simultaneously investing in both family planning and maternal and newborn services, the developing countries could slashed by 70 per cent maternal and newborn deaths.
