Area 3: Keep people healthy

Keep people healthy

Around the world people are working to keep more people healthy for longer. More mothers are surviving childbirth and more babies get to live past their fifth birthday. There’s been good progress on increasing access to clean water and sanitation, reducing malaria, tuberculosis, polio and the spread of HIV/AIDS.

But there’s a lot more to do to achieve the challenging global health targets we’ve set for ourselves.

The UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon launched the Every Woman Every Child initiative at the United Nations Millennium Development Goals Summit in September 2010. Every Woman Every Child is an unprecedented global movement that mobilizes and intensifies international and national action by governments, multilaterals, the private sector and civil society to address the major health challenges facing women and children around the world. The movement puts into action the Global Strategy for Women and Children’s Health, which presents a roadmap on how to enhance financing, strengthen policy and improve service on the ground for the most vulnerable women and children.
