Zero Draft Of The Updated Global Strategy For Women’s, Children’s, and Adolescents’ Health

An updated Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s, and Adolescents’ Health builds on new evidence, including the need to focus on critical population groups such as newborns, adolescents and those living in fragile and conflict settings, build the resilience of health systems, improve the quality of health services and equity in their coverage, and work with health-enhancing sectors on issues such as women’s empowerment, education, nutrition, water, sanitation and hygiene.  It also aligns with the targets and indicators developed for the Sustainable Development Goals framework and outline opportunities for means of implementation, including innovative financing and the Global Financing Facility.
