In-person and Online event

USAID, UNICEF, and the governments of India, Senegal, and the United Kingdom invite you to join “Maternal and Child Survival: A Decade of Progress and Action for the Future,” an in-person (in Washington, DC) and virtual event on March 21, 2023 from 8am to 1pm EDT. This event will mark the 10-year anniversary of the Child Survival Call to Action by reinvigorating collective action on maternal and child survival. The event will feature diverse speakers and virtual participation of partners from around the globe.

The 2012 Call to Action was a groundbreaking event that catalyzed a global movement to dramatically improve maternal and child survival. Improving the survival chances and quality of life of women, newborns, and children remains an urgent global challenge. Since 2012, meaningful progress has been made in reducing maternal and under-five deaths, and a handful of countries are on target to meet the Sustainable Development Goal targets in 2030. Yet, 5 million children under the age of five still die each year, and nearly half of those are newborns less than a month old. Worse still, the maternal mortality ratio continues to stagnate and even increase in some parts of the world.

This event will:

  • Highlight country-led progress made over the last decade
  • Sharpen our focus on the approaches needed to close the gap in achieving the Sustainable Development Goal targets for maternal, newborn, and child mortality
  • Feature USAID’s new strategic framework for accelerating progress toward ending preventable child and maternal deaths
  • Bolster an integrated focus on strengthening primary health care and delivering quality essential services to women and children
  • Provide an opportunity for dialogue on how to move forward, together.

How can you join?
