Global Strategy for Women’s and Children’s Health
Mapping of progress and needs in implementation of country commitments: Progress and needs in 53 countries
Each participating country government has made a set of commitments supporting the United Nations Secretary-General’s Global Strategy for Women’s and Children’s Health (UNSG’s Global Strategy). H4+ is mapping the progress in implementation of these commitments by documenting the actions already taken and the remaining gaps. Another objective of the mapping is to identify any specific areas of need where assistance from H4+ could help to accelerate further progress.
