The head of the U.S. Agency for International Development, Rajiv Shah, says that every day this year 18,000 more children will live and 700 more mothers will survive compared to the daily maternal and child mortality rate in 1990. Shah's agency will host a forum Wednesday in collaboration with governments of India, Ethiopia and other partners to mark the second anniversary of the Child and Maternal Survival Call to Action.
