Acting on the Call - Ending Preventable Child and Maternal Deaths

High-level forum

Where: Washington DC, USA
When: 25 June 2014

This high-level forum will celebrate progress made on ending preventable child and maternal deaths since the 2012 launch of Committing to Child Survival: A Promise Renewed.

Acting on the Call will examine the challenges that remain and assess how these and related efforts have significantly expanded the level of collaboration around critical programming to end preventable child and maternal deaths. This event will place a special focus on action plans within 24 developing countries that represent more than 70% of under-five and maternal deaths.

This event is an initiative by Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Governments of Ethiopia and India, in collaboration with UNICEF, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and other partners.
