Abstract

The Millennium Development Goals, created under the auspices of the United Nations, presented an opportunity for political, financial, medical and civil society leaders to focus on the huge disparities in global health provision. Goals 4 and 5, which focus on child and maternal outcomes, have proved more challenging than others to deliver. There are only 4 years left for these challenges to be realised. Chapters cover all the four disciplines (midwifery, obstetrics and gynaecology, anaesthesia and paediatrics) and the authors are all outstanding contributors in this area of global health. Midwives, obstetricians, paediatricians and anaesthetists have provided an up-to-date review that will be an immensely useful reference for all healthcare workers involved in advocacy on behalf of women and children. The RCOG’s global network has enabled it to draw examples from countries as diverse as Afghanistan and Egypt to produce an overview of the challenges still remaining. This book will prove an essential tool for all those trying to tackle the issues of delivering Millennium Development Goals 4 and 5 within the next 4 years.
