The brochure Committing to Child Survival: A Promise Renewed introduces a wide-ranging and ambitious initiative that seeks to advance the United Nations Secretary-General’s Every Woman Every Child global movement, uniting a number of partners around the goal of ending preventable child deaths. Clear and compelling evidence shows that it is possible to lower under-five mortality rates in developing countries to levels approaching those in wealthier nations. The technology and know-how are available; the world has the responsibility to fulfil its promise to give all children a fair opportunity to survive and thrive. A Promise Renewed highlights areas for action, with an emphasis on evidence-based country plans; transparency and mutual accountability; global communication and social mobilization. It briefly outlines the national action and international cooperation strategies and mechanisms through which progress will be shared and analysed and efforts scaled-up.
