Acting on the Call. Ending Preventable Child and Maternal Deaths

On June 25, USAID and the Governments of Ethiopia and India, in collaboration with UNICEF, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and other partners, will come together for the high-level forum Acting on the Call: Ending Preventable Child and Maternal Deaths.

The Acting on the Call: Ending Preventable Child and Maternal Deaths forum will unveil new efforts to save an unprecedented number of women and children by 2020 in 24 priority countries. It will also announce adoption of bold reforms to improve effectiveness and efficiency at USAID.

An important touchstone since the first Call to Action in 2012, this forum will gather global health leaders from governments, faith-based organizations, civil societies and the private sector to celebrate the progress, assess the challenges that remain and identify the steps needed to sustain momentum in the future.
