Toronto, 29 May 2014 — Mawlana Hazar Imam spoke this morning at a summit on the global fight to improve maternal, newborn and child health in developing countries.“I am here today because of my conviction that improving maternal, neonatal and child health should be one of the highest priorities on the global development agenda,” said Mawlana Hazar Imam, who gave a keynote speech at the invitation of Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper. “I can think of no other field in which a well-directed effort can make as great or as rapid an impact.”

  1. Blessing of Imam for the great endeavour is most important news for me today. At National Confederation of Dalit Organisation led National Campaign of Nutrition for Dignity with the support of Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition, we are engaged in social audit of the implementation of ICDS, advocating at the state and national level for rapid redress of administrative and policy gaps.
