The Millennium Development Goals (MDG) are ‘ending’ in 2015. Some countries will have achieved some of the eight MDGs, some will have surpassed them and some will not have achieved any. Two goals are of particular interest to midwives and the RMNCH community: Goal 4 to reduce child mortality and Goal 5 to improve maternal health. In many countries the MDGs have acted as a catalyst even when the actual target was not reached. The world’s poorest people need a new catalyst to stimulate, motivate, influence or whatever else is needed to convince governments, INGOs, aid organisations and organisations like the World Bank, UNICEF or WHO that action is necessary and worth doing. This timely conference aims to help set the post-2015 agenda.
