Co-organized by the Every Woman Every Child Secretariat, IAP, International Health Partnership for UHC 2030 (UHC2030) and the Partnership for Maternal, Newborn & Child Health (PMNCH).
The UN Secretary-General’s Independent Accountability Panel (IAP) for Every Woman Every Child (EWEC) is launching its landmark 2020 Report Caught in the COVID-19 storm: progress and accountability for women’s, children’s and adolescents’ health in the context of UHC and SDGs. This virtual event aims to:
• Bring visibility to the critical importance of health accountability as a practical tool to ensure countries deliver on the promise of UHC for women, children, adolescents and those furthest left behind—especially as COVID-19 threatens to disrupt progress and reverse the gains
• Energize and inspire stakeholders to act on the IAP recommendations to strengthen social-political accountability, especially at the country-level, and make health accountability everyone’s business
• Set the scene and build momentum towards follow-up planned throughout the year.
High-level speakers and leading voices will deliver remarks and/or engage in a dynamic discussion moderated by Ms. Gillian Tett, Chair of the Editorial Board and Editor-at-large of the Financial Times.
