For the past several months, national, regional and international discussions and consultations have been taking place regarding the design of a new development agenda to succeed the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) from 2000. The Post-2015 discussion has included a broad array of perspectives, ambitions, needs and priorities in the context of a rapidly changing landscape. At this key moment, it is critical that like-minded civil society advocates present a united and coherent voice on the future of the development agenda.
Individuals claiming to work for "ICAD Kenya" have allegedly been attempting to raise funds in Kenya. They have also used Facebook to create an appearance of being affiliated with us. ICAD has no offices anywhere in developing countries, nor do we raise funds from individuals or NGOs in any developing country.

As many of you have heard, an important and exciting funding announcement was made yesterday that promises great strides in furthering Canada's commitment to improving maternal, newborn and child health globally. The announcement made by the Minister for International Development and Minister for la Francophonie, the Honourable Christian Paradis, was delivered at the Annual General Meeting of the Canadian Network for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health. The launch of this much-anticipated call for proposals is open to Canadian NGOs, civil society groups and private sector organizations with experience implementing international development programming and MNCH interventions more specifically. It will fund initiatives for up to 5 years and will help to reduce maternal and child mortality and improve the health of women and children in 40 developing countries across Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East. With a total allocation of $370 million to the Partnerships for Strengthening Maternal, Newborn and Child Health, the focus will be on 1) strengthening health systems; 2) reducing the burden of disease; 3) improving nutrition, and; 3) ensuring accountability for results. All initiatives must also integrate DFATD's three cross-cutting themes of: environmental sustainability, gender equality and governance.
