In the springs of 2013 and 2012, MacArthur supported two convenings – one in Nigeria and another in Oaxaca, Mexico – on accountability efforts to improve maternal and reproductive health. The Nigeria convening brought together eight NGOs to discuss how the government can be held accountable for following through on efforts to help achieve the Millennium Development Goal pertaining to maternal mortality. The Oaxaca convening, organized by Semillas, a MacArthur grantee, gathered representatives of leading maternal and reproductive health organizations from India, Mexico, and Nigeria to share strategies for improving maternal and reproductive health though transparency and accountability efforts.
