This morning I landed in Zanzibar for a two-day meeting of the High Level Commission ICPD+25, which works to promote the rights of girls and women.
Today we went to a reproductive health clinic. What particularly impressed was the clinic's ambition, professionalism and commitment to achieve 'zero maternity mortality' - to avoid maternal mortality - despite the difficult conditions. This is one of the many important global goals, especially because there is knowledge of what can be done to prevent deaths and avoid the human cost of losing a mother.
I experienced a dedicated staff and positive results. I had the great pleasure of greeting two mothers and their shapely newborn babies who came into the world this morning.
