About this book

Volume in the Millennium Development Library addressing the need for a transformation of health systems for women and children.

From the publisher's announcement:

The central thrust of Who's Got the Power? is that dramatic, meaningful, sustainable progress toward decreasing child and maternal mortality requires an intense focus on improving health systems. The authors highlight that change is possible and they advance a comprehensive action plan that recommends the rapid and equitable sale-up of interventions such as integrated management of childhood illness, the universal provision of emergency obstetric care and sexual and reproductive health services, and the provision of strengthened health systems. This bold yet practical approach will enable every country to reduce the under-five mortality rate by two-thirds and the maternal mortality rate by three-quarters within ten years.
