Ban Ki-moon: “The Best Investment a Country Can Make” @UN #hwhtw #maternalhealth

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon recently spoke at a reception for the in support of “Every Woman Every Child”, in Mumbai, India.  He congratulated India on its efforts to eradicate polio, and challenged the crowd to put the same resources toward maternal and child health, calling it a “common sense approach”:

“[W]e share the same conviction that saving women’s and children’s lives is the best investment any country can make.  If a person is ill, or their child is sick, anyone with resources would not think twice about spending them on health care.  But, somehow, Governments often miss this common-sense approach to what matters in life.”
