Promoting a broad agenda of political, social, health and empowerment issues, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon arrived in Deauville, France to participate in the summit of the Group of Eight (G-8) industrialized countries and speak on issues such as the pro-democracy movement in the Arab world, crises in Africa and women’s and children’s health. Remembering Last Year’s G8 Goal of Maternal Health Mr. Ban is due to participate in sessions of the so-called G8 Outreach Program, where he is expected to continue to advocate for sustained attention to women’s and children’s health as a cornerstone of the global development agenda.
