  • The underlying initiative – Every Woman Every Child – was launched in September 2010 by Ban Ki-moon. This global strategy set out key areas where action was urgently needed to enhance financing, strengthen policy, and improve service delivery. With a focus on key interventions, 16 million women’s, newborn’s, and children’s lives could be saved by 2015.What you don’t see on this slide is who is involved in making this all happen. This is truly a global call: governments, multilaterals, bilaterals, civil society, private sector, donors, etc. The Information and Accountability for Results and Resources cross cuts all of these initiatives, as does Countdown to 2015.
