In celebration of the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day, Women Deliver is announcing the “Women Deliver 100,” their list of the hundred most inspiring people who have delivered for girls and women. This list recognizes women and men, both prominent and lesser known, who have committed themselves to improving the lives of girls and women around the world. Honorees derive from the fields of health, human rights, politics, economics, education, journalism, and philanthropy, and represent a great diversity of geographic and cultural backgrounds. The 100 honorees were selected from among hundreds of potentials and feature some of the most intrepid, committed, and results-driven people in the world.

39 years of work in the health care by BRAC is paying off for the people. Two weeks ago, a national survey showed the dramatic fall in the maternal mortality rate in the last 9 years. You can see the detailed report here.
