The flagship event of the Millennium Development Goals summit this September was an hour long discussion between governments, philanthropies and corporations dedicated to hastening progress toward the MDGs dealing with maternal and child health.  This meeting resulted in the launch of a Global Strategy for Women’s and Children’s health, and with it $40 billion of commits from donors and scores of policy commitments from recipient countries.

Of course, commitments are just pledges. Actually following through and implementing them is the hard part.  And as of today, there is a new website that lets interested parties keep tabs on the progress that has been made toward implementing the global strategy for women’s and chidren’s health. Check it out.
