Black Tie International:
Healthy Mothers and Children Worldwide
Senator Bill Frist
Senator Bill Frist, M.D., Releases PSA to Promote Healthy Timing and Spacing of Pregnancies as Key to Saving Lives of Mothers
 and Children in the Developing World
Senator Bill First:  Family Planning Improves Maternal & Child Health


NASHVILLE, Tennessee., July 2, 2014 ? Senator Bill Frist, M.D., founder of Hope Through Healing Hands, released a Public Service Announcement this week as part of a U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) gathering in Washington, D.C. The group met to unveil new efforts to save millions of women and children from preventable deaths, including more than $600 million in major public/private partnerships and awards with 26 partners to improve maternal and child survival. Unable to attend in person, Senator Frist produced a video PSA to be launched at the meeting, expressing his support for the efforts and his belief that this strategy is a key to saving millions of lives.


Senator Frist references his experiences as both a physician and a U.S. Senator, visiting communities around the world as a part of Save the Children's maternal and child health program. "I have learned that maternal and child health and global health have this whole issue that's been under appreciated. The nexus between the two is this issue of family planning, of appropriate spacing of pregnancies and the timing of when those pregnancies occur," he said.


"Issues become partisan," he continued, "but this is one issue that is not a partisan issue, it is a humanitarian issue, not in the sense of philanthropy, but in terms of what makes us a people.  It comes down to what is the right thing to do, scientifically demonstrated, and that is non-partisan."


Senator Frist concludes the video by stating how successful he thinks this one strategy could be in saving the lives of mothers and children worldwide. "By enabling women and families to engage in family planning, we know today that we can reduce overall maternal deaths by 30 percent and neonatal childhood deaths by as much as 25 percent."


Hope Through Healing Hands (HTHH), a Nashville-based global health organization, recently partnered with The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to create the Faith-based Coalition for Healthy Mothers and Children Worldwide. Its mission is to galvanize faith leaders across the U.S. on the issues of maternal, newborn and child health in developing countries, with an emphasis on the benefits of healthy timing and spacing of pregnancies, including the voluntary use of methods for preventing pregnancy, not including abortion, that are harmonious with their values and religious beliefs.
