Support Women's Health with the Global MOMS Act

Having a baby should be among a woman's most joyous moments in life. Unfortunately, for many women around the world, childbirth can be dangerous and even deadly -- for both mother and child.

The Global MOMS Act will expand access to maternal health services and greatly reduce maternal mortality.

In 2000, the U.S., along with 191 countries, pledged to meet the Millennium Development Goals, including targeting a 75 percent decrease in maternal mortality, by 2015. The Global MOMS Act will help fulfill the pledge, as well as help countless mothers worldwide get quality health care services. For some moms, this act will be the difference between life and death.

No woman should have to put her life or health at risk during pregnancy or childbirth, and all newborns should have a healthy start in life. Tell your members of Congress to support the Global MOMS Act and fight for women's health around the world.

Dear Congressperson,

The proposed Improving Global Maternal and Newborn Health Outcomes while Maximizing Successes Act (Global MOMS Act), which would expand access to maternal health services and greatly reduce maternal mortality, is extremely important. For many women, the passing of this act could be the difference between life and death.

In 2000, the U.S., along with 191 countries, pledged to meet the Millennium Development Goals, including targeting a 75 percent decrease in maternal mortality, by 2015. The Global MOMS Act will help fulfill this pledge, as well as help countless mothers worldwide get quality health care services. It would call for the development of a strategy to fight maternal mortality and better coordinate existing women's health efforts. This act is crucial in improving women's health and reducing maternal mortality internationally.

I call on you and your colleagues to support the Global MOMS Act. I look forward to your response.
