In an effort to better understand the funding landscape for maternal health, GHV undertook a thorough review of current U.S. non-governmental donors. Specifically, the researchers developed a comprehensive landscape analysis of primary U.S. maternal heath donors with a specific focus on private foundations, corporate donors, and individuals.
While maternal health (MH) has recently received considerable visibility and financial commitments, several recognized estimates indicate an enormous funding gap remains to accomplish MDG 5. However, these estimates are not inclusive of contributions made by foundations, corporate donors, and individuals, leaving the funding landscape incomplete. This work was completed by Global Health Visions for the Maternal Health Task Force.
