‘Health is a human right.

‘It would seem that the CDU/CSU-FDP German government does not greatly value the important global work, recognised worldwide, which is carried out
by the United Nations Children’s Fund, UNICEF: funding for UNICEF has been cut from 6.5 million euros to 4.675 million euros. This represents a
reduction of over 28 per cent. The government is thus riding roughshod over the rights of children.'
‘The SPD parliamentary party calls on the federal government to take the importance of infant and maternal mortality within the context of the development cooperation seriously and provide the necessary financial and human resources. Urgent action is needed. Action plans against maternal deaths are required. In countries which are particularly affected, they need to be implemented immediately to improve the situation until 2015.’
