Queen meets UNESCO head, attends "Every Woman Every Child" Event.
On Tuesday, Queen Rania attended the "Every Woman, Every Child" reception hosted by the UN Millennium Development Goals MDG Health Alliance.
Launched by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon during the MDG Summit in September 2010, "Every Woman Every Child" aims to save the lives of 16 million women and children by 2015.
The Queen also attended a meeting called for by the Gordon Brown and Brookings Institution, for "A Global Business Coalition for Education".
The meeting of interested CEOs aimed to make the case for a Global Coalition for Education and to discuss how it should function. The Global Business Coalition for Education will be based on the successful model created by the Global Business Coalition for Health (GBC Health).
Launched in 2001, this business coalition has grown from 17 to nearly 200 corporate members. //Petra// AA, A SH 21/9/2011 - 08:36:52 PM
