Botswana MDGs Acceleration Compact
This MDG Acceleration Compact (also called MAF Action Plan)to accelerate the reduction of maternal mortality will enable Botswana to achieve our commitment by 2015. It is one of the follow-up actions to the Botswana Millennium Development Report of 2010. The Government of Botswana decided to accelerate its efforts with a focus on Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) that were either at risk of reversal, or were lagging behind, such as maternal mortality.
This MAF Action Plan complements work already ongoing in the area of maternal health. It is important that one reporting mechanism using the existing structure be utilized to ensure effective coordination and avoidance of duplication. Accordingly, the Government would take responsibility forthe oversight and accountability of the MAF Action.
