Ante- natal education and perinatal care could be a valuable initiative if funded and provided in central rural areas

I agree with Travis - some very dodgy stuff within aid organisations. Also, while maternal health is an issue of paramount importance I'd like to see access to basic resources and education even more.

I do not specifically agree with the crux of the article's argument - that targeting Maternal Health will reap higher and more tangible outcomes for AID payments. However, AID has been politically driven for too long, and oftentimes, corruption at the receiving end (not necessarily the fault of the charity but "par for the course" of business in developing countries) needs to be stamped out to ensure good corporate governance. A public inquiry into AID outcomes.
