Oh Baby: Putting Reproductive Health on the Global Agenda

Societies fail women at key moments in their lives-by not offering them quality health care. The consequences-and costs-of inaction are great. After all, women and girls are major contributors to families, communities, and economies. What needs to happen to ensure that female reproductive health needs are met, and how do we ensure that women are centrally involved in the design, management, and delivery of health services? Nicholas Kristof, Kavita Ramdas, Anne Veneman and Peggy Clark discuss the growing role of reproductive health in global health considerations.
