DFID response to ICAI recommendations on: Assessing DFID's Results in Improving Maternal Health

DFID welcomes the Independent Commission for Aid Impact’s impact review on assessing DFID’s results in improving maternal health and its recommendations.



Addressing the needs of women in low income countries is at the core of DFID’s agenda and women’s health and wellbeing is the backbone of a nation’s development. This review assesses DFID’s maternal health work results between the period 2011 and 2015 across three domains: impact, equity and sustainability.

The report is timely and the recommendations will feed into DFID’s upcoming strategic planning work.
