The UK Government's Framework for Results for improving reproductive, maternal and newborn health in the developing world “Choices for women: Planned pregnancies, safe births and healthy newborns” was launched on 31 December 2010. The publication of the Framework for Results followed the required consultation period and included relevant civil society organisations.
