Since its launch in September 2010, the Every Woman Every Child movement, led by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, has helped catalyze new attention and investment to some of the most neglected causes of women's and children's mortality. Through unprecedented global coordination and partnerships, the movement has leveraged more than $20 billion in new money to save the lives of 16 million women and children by 2015. As of now, $10 billion has already been disbursed. Watch Women Deliver President Jill Sheffield and others speak about the significance of this progress.
