In September 2007, the Norwegian Government under the leadership of its Prime Minister launched the Global Campaign for the Health Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The Global Campaign embodies a multi-country commitment to find better ways of achieving value for money and ensuring that the most vulnerable groups have access to essential services. Norway’s support focuses particularly on MDG 4 to reduce child mortality and MDG 5 to improve maternal health and includes the Partnership Initiatives (PI) to support their achievement. The Partnership Initiatives take the form of bilateral cooperation agreements with countries with high child mortality rates including India, Pakistan, Malawi, Nigeria and Tanzania. Managed by the Royal Norwegian Embassies (RNE), the Partnership Initiative has committed NOK 1,225,000,000 (US$ 205 million) through agreements with a range of partners in these countries.
