19/06/2007: New WCF Chief Executive
WCF Board of Trustees are delighted to confirm the appointment of our new Chief Executive, Ros Davies. Ros will join Women and Children First on Monday 2nd July. Ros has 18 years in the sexual and reproductive health and HIV/AIDS field, and brings considerable NGO leadership, senior management and development experience.
We look forward to working with her.
Over a quarter of a million women and three million newborn babies die each year in pregnancy and childbirth or soon afterwards, the majority of them in Africa and South Asia. For every woman who dies at least twenty more suffer complications which leave them with lifelong disability and pain.
Our unique programmes are saving the lives of mothers and babies every day. We need you to help us to equip women with their most vital survival tool: knowledge.
