Every Woman Every Child is mobilizing hundreds of partners for maximum effect, with more than 300 organizations having made commitments to advance the Global Strategy for Women's and Children's Health. All partners have an important role to play: governments and policymakers, donor countries and philanthropic institutions, the United Nations and other multilateral organizations, civil society, the business community, health workers and their professional associations, and academic and research institutions.

This catalogue of commitments sets out how partners will contribute to achieving better health for women and children around the world, contributing to some of Every Woman Every Child's key outcomes. These include saving 16 million lives by 2015, preventing 33 million unwanted pregnancies, protecting 120 millions of children from pneumonia and 88 million children from stunting, advancing the control of deadly diseases such as malaria, HIV/AIDS, and ensuring access for women and children to quality facilities and skilled health workers.

We have already seen remarkable progress—funding has been increased and at least US$ 10 billion disbursed as of 2012, numerous commitments have been implemented and enhanced, new partners have come on board, policies improved and services strengthened on the ground.
