Promoting health through the life-course

Global Strategy for Women's, Children's and Adolescent's Health 2016-2030

The Global Strategy (2016-2030) is a roadmap to achieve right to the highest attainable standard of health for all women, children and adolescents –to transform the future and ensure every newborn, mother and child not only survives, but thrives. The new Strategy - updated through a process of collaboration with stakeholders led by WHO - builds on the success of the 2010 Strategy and its Every Woman Every Child movement as a platform to accelerate the health-related Millennium Development Goals and puts women, children and adolescents at the heart of the new UN Sustainable Development Goals.
