This Friday, April 5, 2013, leading NGOs and Momentum 1000 partners will rally to spread awareness about the 1000-days countdown to the expiration of the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) in 2015. MDGs are the international development goals that were set by the United Nations and its partners in 2000 to improve the lives and health of people living in the world’s poorest countries.
On Friday between 9:30 – 10 PM EST we will host a Twitter chat called Picturing Maternal Health where we will discuss the global maternal health crisis through facts as well as photos. We would love for you to join us.
The maternal health MDG is all over the map globally. Some countries will successfully meet its MDG goals and others are far off the mark. In fact, the World Bank announced last year that the maternal health MDG will not be met, but that does not mean progress needs to slow or stop especially as world leaders work towards a post-2015 international development goals agenda.
Join us on Friday, April 5 from 9:30 – 10:00 PM EST for the Picturing Maternal Health Twitter chat. You can join and follow the conversation with the #SocialGoodMoms and #MDGMomentum hashtags.
