Additional support to Ghana

The European Commission will give additional support (€52 million) to Ghana to reduce maternal mortality and achieve the MDG 5 targets. The European Commissioner for Development, Andris Piebalgs  says that “[it] will make a major contribution to the fight against poverty”. This support is part of the additional  funding  to African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries aimed to meet the Millennium Development Goals.
The European Union will focus on three priority areas: improving family planning, skilled attendance at delivery and emergency obstetric and newborn care, contributing therefore to the implementation of the “MDG Accelerated Framework and Country Action Plan”.
“In line with our recent proposals for the future EU development policy, the ‘Agenda for Change’, we will invest our money where it is needed most and where we can achieve real results”, Andris Piebalgs highlighted.
The additional support’s initiative was launched by José Manuel Barroso, President of the European Commission, at the UN summit in September 2010.
