Commitments to Every Woman Every Child


H4+ (WHO, UNFPA, UNICEF, UNAIDS, UN Women and the World Bank)


WHO, UNFPA, UNICEF, UNAIDS, UN Women and the World Bank commit to mobilize political support for the Global Strategy in the 49 "Lowest Income Countries"; increasing the speed of the downward trend in maternal and child mortality by strengthening country and regional technical capacity to implement commitments; advocating for equity-focused approaches that include universal access to an integrated essential package of health services for women and children; and to addressing the root causes of ill-health, in particular gender inequality. They further commit to promoting the critical engagement of other sectors such as education, gender, nutrition, water and sanitation, culture and human rights; strengthening ongoing inter-agency collaboration in order to optimize the advocacy for increased and sustained financial resources, as well as linking additional global resources to evidence-based country-driven interventions; and sustaining the momentum of the Global Strategy beyond 2015.  See WHO, UNFPA, UNICEF, UNAIDS, UN Women and the World Bank.
