Deklaration der G8 Staaten letzte Woche in Italien

Wir möchten Sie
darauf aufmerksam machen, dass die G8-Staaten bei ihrem Treffen in Italien
letzte Woche eine Deklaration herausgegeben haben, die auch unsere Arbeit mit
Müttern und Kindern (BFHI) anspricht. „G8 Leaders Declaration: responsible leadership for a
sustainable future“.

Besonders die Sektion
„Promoting Global Health“ (Paragraphen 120-125), die folgende
Schlüsselformulierungen enthalten:

  • „progress
    towards health-related MDGs, especially for child mortality and maternal
    health is still off-track particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa“
  • „In the current global financial crisis we reaffirm our
    commitment to address the health needs of the most vulnerable, especially
    women and children.“
  • „We
    will accelerate progress on combating child mortality, including through
    intensifying support for immunization and micronutrient supplementation,
    and on maternal health, including through sexual and reproductive health
    care and services and voluntary family planning.“
  • „We
    warmly support building a global consensus on maternal, newborn and child
    health as a way to accelerate progress on the Millennium Development Goals
    for both maternal and child health, through (i) political and community
    leadership and engagement; (ii) a quality package of evidence-based
    interventions through effective health systems; (iii) the removal of
    barriers to access for all women and children, free at the point of use
    where countries chose to provide it; (iv) skilled health workers; (v)
    accountability for results.“
  • „We encourage the work of the WHO, WB, UNICEF and UNFPA are doing
    to renew international efforts on maternal and child health.“
  • „Building
    on the decisions taken at St.
    Petersburg, Heiligendamm and Toyako, we have
    established a follow-up mechanism to monitor the progress of health
    commitments. We welcome the report submitted by our experts, highlighting
    progress and proposing further actions, and we commit to further
    improvements.“
