The updated framework will consider the emerging needs, increased evidence-base, and a better understanding of the broader determinants related to health systems, enablers, and human rights. Greater attention will be given to the role of health enhancing sectors, such as education, water, nutrition and sanitation and there will be a focus on innovation and sustainable financing. This work stream is led by H4+ and PMNCH, with WHO playing a key coordinating role.
