Motivated by the magnitude of, and the urgent need to respond to, the maternal, newborn and child health challenges on the African continent, the WBFA launched and continues to develop a multi-platform advocacy and health information campaign under the banner of WBF 24:7:365 Countdown to 2015. The campaign points to the need to devote every hour of every day to changing Africa’s maternal newborn and child mortality rates. Currently nearly half of all maternal deaths occur in Africa and one in every eighth child will die before the age of 5. The sober truth is that, with the right clinical and public health intervention and, critically, the right information, many of these deaths are preventable.
