The WellBeing Foundation joined stakeholders in the global drive for improved Maternal, Newborn and Child for a two-day Partners Forum at the Vigyan Bhawan, New Delhi, India between November 12 and November 14, 2010.

The Conference which was called by the Global Partnership on Maternal, Newborn and Child Health (PMNCH), of which WBF is a member, sought to engage stakeholders from governments, civil society organizations, media, communities and donor agencies on the best way to ensure that the promises of the past few years are translated into action towards meeting the Millennium Development Goals. The conference therefore had the theme: “From Pledges to Action”

WBF and its strategic partner, Stronghold Support Services Limited, distributors of the wave making Personal Health Record (PHR) were at the conference with Information, Enlightenment and Communications materials as well as the Personal Health Record which is reputed to be one of the most significant innovations towards the att

ainment of MDGs 4 and 5 in Nigeria. The PHR generated a lot of questions among stakeholders especially among Indians who said that the idea of producing the record in triplicate was innovative and would helpful in their country

As WBF Founder/President, Her Excellency Mrs. Toyin Saraki is National Champion; MNCH for the White Ribbon Alliance for Safe Motherhood (WRAN), the Foundation also had WRAN coordinator, Mr. Tonte Ibraye on its delegation.

At the end of the conference which had four plenary sessions and about two dozen parallel sessions, WBF joined hundreds of individual stakeholders and organizations who attended the conference to among others:

• Welcome the commitments and outcomes that world leaders agreed to in the Global Strategy for Women’s and Children’s Health launched at the MDG Summit in September 2010; and encourage further commitments to funding fully costed national plans for achieving MDGs 4 and 5.

• Work with governments and other key stakeholders to transform into action the pledges made in the Global Strategy.

• Act on the emerging consensus on priority, evidence-based interventions, and ensure these are articulated in the form of national plans and implemented equitably at scale through the continuum of care, in order to achieve the agreed results for women’s, newborns’ and children’s health.

• Agree to shared principles for advocacy, action and accountability:

• Affirm the Partnership for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health is an active participant to track commitments and results and thus ensure mutual accountability.

• Agree to regularly monitor and report on progress, and meet again in 2015, in Delhi, to evaluate the achievement of our shared global commitments to women’s, newborns’ and children’s health, development and human rights.
