Every Newborn Toolkit

Addressing newborn survival requires clear consensus on evidence, strategies and actions by a broad community of partners. Every Newborn will be a roadmap for change taking forward the United Nations Secretary General’s Global Strategy for Women’s and Children’s Health by focusing specific attention on newborn health and identifying actions for improving their survival, health and development. The plan is being developed by a diverse group of stakeholders, led by WHO and UNICEF, and guided by the advice of countries and experts. This Toolkit provides practical support to all those engaged in promoting greater action and accountability on newborn and maternal health through national planning and programming, advocacy, research, implementation, and monitoring and evaluation. The following resources are included in the Toolkit:
