This booklet provides examples of key actions used by 10 countries which are on track to achieve Millennium Development Goals for maternal and child health.

Evidence for Action-MamaYe collaborated with PMNCH (the Partnership for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health) to identify the actions, policies and solutions from 10 countries making substantial progress in improving women and children’s health.

The booklet "Success Factors: What can we learn about making progress on women’s and children’s health?" draws on an analysis of 10 countries which are on-track to meeting their Millennium Development Goal (MDG) targets for maternal and child health. 

The Success Factors booklet was launched at the UN General Assembly (UNGA) in September 2013 and will be followed by 10 in depth reports on how countries have made progress to improve the health of their women and children. The countries documented in the booklet are Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, Egypt, Ethiopia, Laos PDR, Nepal, Peru, Rwanda and Vietnam.

We hope these lessons serve as an impetus for change in other settings!
