Despite many challenges—from climate change to conflicts and mounting debt—GFF partner countries are showing that progress is still possible in improving the health and well-being of women, children and adolescents.

The numbers in this annual report tell a powerful story. With GFF support, partner countries have reached 100 million pregnant women with access to four or more pregnancy care visits. About 130 million women have accessed safe birth services, and countries around the world that have been implementing their health plans for more than three years have boosted pregnancy care coverage by more than 40 percent compared with an increase of just over 1 percent for countries that have been doing so for 1 to 3 years. This shows the promise of staying the course.

But beyond the data, this partnership has had a much wider impact on the lives of women, children and their communities. It’s a positive ripple effect that is impossible to measure. You see those benefits in the communities, and cities across the 36 countries working with the GFF. Improvements in assisted deliveries, pregnancy and newborn care, childhood immunizations and family planning empower women, strengthen health care systems and put countries on the road to a more prosperous future.

GFF partner countries are rising to the challenge and the GFF is fulfilling its promise to #DeliverTheFuture for all. This requires an even greater collective focus, increased priority on strengthening systems, more collaboration, and continued innovation and learning.
