Up to €26m to improve women and children's health globally

Neven Mimica

The EU pledged last Tuesday around €26m at the Global Financing Facility replenishment event in Oslo, hosted by the World Bank and the government of Norway. “With today's contribution, the EU will join the Facility as an active member.

The contribution will help giving women, children and adolescents, especially the most vulnerable, better access to comprehensive maternal health services,” Development Commissioner Neven Mimica said. The call for replenishment aims at expanding GFF support to 50 countries by 2023.
