WHO Partnership for Maternal Newborn and Child Health Partners' Forum

12-13 December 2018
New Delhi, India

PMNCH is bringing together 1,200 partners dedicated to the Every Woman Every Child (EWEC) movement and the achievement of the UN Secretary General’s Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health (Global Strategy).

The 2018 Forum, hosted by the Government of India will centre on improving multisectoral action for results, sharing country solutions and capturing the best practices and knowledge within and among the health sector and related sectors. It will also emphasize the importance of people- centred accountability bringing forward the voices and lived realities of women, children and adolescents through innovative programming and creative projects.

Specific goals of the Partners’ Forum include:

  • Greater political momentum, sustaining attention to the “Survive-Thrive-Transform” agenda of the Global Strategy, and its contribution to driving the Universal Health Coverage (UHC) and the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). The voices of women, children and adolescents will be central to our messaging and framing. 
  • Knowledge exchange, through sharing of lessons learned and best practices to innovate and improve implementation strategies for results. The rigorously produced “Success Factors” case studies (selected from more than 300 partner-led proposals) will anchor this effort. 
  • Improved cross-sectoral collaboration through knowledge exchange and joint advocacy strategies.
