Every Woman Every Child is a multi-stakeholder initiative that aims to encourage governments, civil society and private sector companies to improve the lives of vulnerable women and children. The initiative was launched in September 2010 by the United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and is currently supported by 200 partners. The effort puts into action the Global Strategy for Women’s and Children’s Health, which presents a roadmap on how to enhance financing, strengthen policy and improve service on the ground for the most vulnerable women and children.
Every Woman Every Child recognizes that all actors have an important role to play in improving women's and children's health. Every Woman Every Child recognizes that all actors have an important role to play in improving women's and children's health. More than $40 billion was pledged at the 2010 launch, and numerous partners have made additional, and critical, financial, policy and service delivery commitments, but more help is needed. The Secretary-General is asking the international community for the additional commitments necessary to take Every Woman Every Child past the tipping point. This would mean saving the lives of 16 million women and children, preventing 33 million unwanted pregnancies, ending stunting in 88 million children, and protecting 120 million children from pneumonia by 2015.
