Committing to Child Survival - A Promise Renewed

Published By: UNICEF | Published Date: January, 01 , 2012

To advance Every Woman Every Child, a strategy launched by United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, UNICEF and other UN organizations are joining partners from the public, private and civil society sectors in a global movement to accelerate reductions in preventable maternal, newborn and child deaths. The Child Survival Call to Action was convened in June 2012 by the Governments of Ethiopia, India and the United States, together with UNICEF, to examine ways to spur progress on child survival. A modelling exercise presented at this event demonstrated that all countries can lower child mortality rates to 20 or fewer deaths per 1,000 live births by 2035 – an important milestone towards the ultimate aim of ending preventable child deaths.
