The London Summit on Family Planning takes place on Wednesday (11 July) in a bid to provide an additional 120 million women in the world’s poorest countries with life-saving contraceptives, information and services by 2020.
Hosted by the UK government and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the summit will be attended by the White Ribbon Alliance for Safe Motherhood, which reports it will be 'listening carefully to the pledges announced by political leaders', and then taking action in the countries it represents 'to make sure that those promises are kept'.
For the summit the organisation has produced the Atlas of Birth - a guide to the global picture of maternal health, told with family planning statistics, facts and info-graphics.
It also documents case studies of women in developing countries, to offer a better understanding of how maternal deaths can be prevented.
Members of the White Ribbon Alliance will be live blogging throughout the summit, posting Q&As with key summit participants.
A video blog will also show interviews with key delegates and spokespeople behind the scenes, and will be available via the organisation's YouTube channel.
