Aga Khan University
In continuation of its support for the current Every Woman Every Child initiative of the UN Secretary General, the Aga Khan University strongly supports and endorses the new Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health. As a leading University working on issues of women, newborn infants and children across the various geographies it serves, the Aga Khan University has led the field with the generation of evidence for policy and innovations to reach the poor. Scholars from the University have been part of most recent global initiatives for reducing maternal and child mortality and improving nutrition, long term outcomes and development. Over the next decade the University intends to invest over USD $85 million in programs to improve capacity and to develop programs at scale to reach over 15 million women and children in South-Central Asia and East Africa, and potentially save a million lives.
