WHO Maternal, newborn and child health

PMNCH 2018 Annual Report

Publisher/Organizer: The Partnership for Maternal, Newborn & Child Health Publication date: May 2019 Number of pages: 43 Language: En In April 2018, following the successful global kick-off event announcing that the Partners’ Forum would take place in New Delhi in December, amazing artists from Pipli (a village in India) began hand-stitching hundreds of conference bags, banners and posters to be displayed and distributed at the main event. The banners adorned the walls, their distinctive appliqué style adding vibrant colour and energy. I had the pleasure of meeting these artists, women who had carefully sewn every image, every letter, every rivet onto the banners and to the bags we gave to more than 1,600 participants who joined us in New Delhi. Each bag depicted one of the six focus areas of the Every Woman Every Child movement, representing the hopes and aspirations of women, children and adolescents, everywhere. Many of you took a bag home, and whichever theme you carry as you go about your daily lives, I hope it is an inspiration to you to play your part in making our shared vision come true.

We also explored new ways to publicize evidence for action at each life stage, launching a new knowledge summary on adolescent health and hosting several events and webinars presenting key findings from various Lancet series launched in 2016.

Graça Machel Ends Period of Mourning

After six months of retreat, mourning the death of President Rolihlahla Nelson Mandela, Mrs Graça Machel will now return to her active role as a global advocate for women’s and children’s rights. “In December 2013, Madiba passed on and South Africa lost its father of democracy and leader, and the world lost an internationally respected icon. I lost my best friend, beloved husband, and guide. I have been deeply touched and comforted by the affection shown towards my family and I since Madiba’s illness through to the present moment. I would like to thank our family, friends, and the people throughout the world who gave me love and support during these difficult times.
