Global health

Between 2000 and 2010, a number of severe trends in global health were halted and even reversed.

Most of this progress has been achieved through stronger political commitments and increased health investments. 

The Norwegian government’s intention is to promote a policy of health for all. 

Norway has made a special commitment to increase maternal, child and women's health.

Short movie:

Malawi is one of the countries in Africa south of the Sahara where maternal mortality is the highest. The main reasons are the long distances to health facilities, lack of trained health personnel and poor equipment. If these inadequacies were put right, the numbers of women dying would be drastically reduced.
