Description/achievement of initiative

The United Nations Global Compact and the United Nations Foundation have partnered to support the Secretary General's Global Strategy for Women's and Children's Health and will launch an Every Woman Every Child Task Force within the Global Compact LEAD. The Every Woman Every Child Task Force is being created to focus on new and effective private sector engagements to support progress toward Millennium Development Goals 4 & 5 (related to children's and women's health, respectively). The Task Force will be a dynamic and proactive leadership forum for collaboratively leveraging the private sector's strengths. The aim is to develop collaborations through the exploration of holistic, cross-cutting and cross-industry initiatives resulting in integrated solutions for global women's and children's health challenges.
