EVERY NEWBORN

An action plan to end preventable deaths

Every Newborn Image© Photo Credit / 2013 Newborns now account for 44% of the 18,000 children under age five dying every day. Nearly 2.9 million newborns die each year, and an additional 2.6 million babies are stillborn. We now know how to reduce at least two thirds of these deaths.

Through an extensive consultative process, the Every Newborn effort has developed a draft action plan to take forward the Global Strategy for Women’s and Children’s Health by focusing specific attention on newborn health and identifying actions for improving the linkages between reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health. Convened by UNICEF and WHO, with the support of more than three dozen partner organizations from government, donors, civil society, health professionals, the private sector and academia, consultations will be conducted on this draft action plan immediately following its discussion at the WHO Executive Board meeting in Geneva from 20-25th January 2014. The action plan will also be discussed in May 2014 at the World Health Assembly and formally launched on 31st June 2014 at the Partner’s Forum in Johannesburg.
