Asia-Pacific Leadership and Policy Dialogue

Progress in women’s and children’s health depends on how efficiently commitments and consensus on effective interventions can be translated into action, including accountability for results. This Asia-Pacific Leadership and Policy Dialogue in Manila, 7-9 November 2012, seeks to enhance shared knowledge, cooperation and action to promote universal access to quality healthcare in the region. The Manila Dialogue focuses on three key themes – investment, implementation, accountability with advocacy, innovation and research as cross-cutting themes. Each theme is supported by ‘Notes for Discussion’ in this folder. These Notes are short evidence summaries, with country case studies, designed to further the dialogue between policymakers, program managers and other stakeholders on how to achieve ‘more, better, faster’ reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health (RMNCH) in Asia and the Pacific. This Executive Summary presents the key messages from the Notes for Discussion, as outlined below with the themes listed in alphabetical order.
