UN in your language

Every Woman Every Child

everywomeneverychildWorking with leaders from governments, multilateral organizations, the private sector and civil society, Every Woman Every Child aims to save the lives of 16 million women and children and improve the lives of millions more.

Every Woman Every Child is an unprecedented global effort, spearheaded by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, to mobilize and intensify global action to improve the health of women and children around the world. In a press conference previewing 66th session of the General Debate the Secretary-General called Every Woman Every Child a "model for broad-based international partnership".

Everyone has a vital role to play in improving women's and children's health. National governments can best lead improvements in the lives of women and children, but partners - within and outside of their borders - are needed to support the delivery of country-led health plans and help sustain funding, enable strong policy environments and improve the delivery of critical health services on the ground.

Since its launch in 2010, Every Woman Every Child has already yielded results. New partners have engaged and commitments have been announced. Yet, efforts must be stepped up. The more people involved, the greater the impact, and faster the results and more lives saved.

  • Make a commitment to Every Woman Every Child
