EVERY NEWBORN

An action plan to end preventable deaths

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.

Addressing newborn survival requires clear consensus on evidence, strategies and actions by a broad community of partners. Every Newborn brings together everyone who has a part to play. The preparation was guided by the advice of experts and partners, led by WHO and UNICEF, and by the outcome of several multi-stakeholder consultations and a web-based consultation with more than 300 comments. The plan takes into account all inputs as well as findings from The Lancet Every Newborn Series published in May 2014. Discussed at the 67th World Health Assembly, Member States endorsed the document and made firm commitments to put in practice recommended actions. The Director General has been requested to monitor progress towards the achievement of the global goal and targets and report periodically to the Health Assembly until 2030. By the time Every Newborn is launched in June 2014, dialogues around the plan and actions to support implementation will have been initiated in many countries and among all relevant constituencies. In reality, Every Newborn is about ACTION with a plan. .
