18 September 2016This year at the UN General Assembly, Every Woman Every Child will celebrate results achieved, acknowledge champions for the movement and highlight the importance of keeping women’s, children’s and adolescents’ health and wellbeing at the core of sustainable development efforts.
EWEC partners will emphasize the main messages deriving from the Global Strategy for Women's, Children's and Adolescents' Health, launched in 2015 along the Sustainable Development Goals as a front-runner platform to help implement Agenda 2030.
From 18-22 September, a social media relay will cover topics of relevance for the movement, to ensure that key issues highlighted in the Global Strategy are not only visible, but also help set the agenda and drive the conversation forward about its centrality for a more sustainable, peaceful and prosperous future for all.
