Happy Mother's Day

The New York Times has a great piece on celebrating mothers around the world. They ask, What Do You Give the Developing World for Mother’s Day? In five different pieces they explore the developments which have helped and have the potential to improve the health and wellbeing of women and children across the globe:

A Birth Pill
An inexpensive medicine could save lives.

A Dose of Care
Counseling should be an important part of food aid programs.

An Education
Make going to school affordable.

A Safer Labor
Provide clinics with the basics to preform Caesarean deliveries.

A Custom Drug
Research to better medicate mothers-to-be.
Happy Mothers Day!
