At a major event at the World Health Summit, global partners, including WHO, will launch a new progress report on the current state of women, children’s and adolescent health.

Titled Protect the Promise, this report provides the most comprehensive, up-to-date synthesis of evidence on this critical topic, documenting severe setbacks caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Produced through the Every Woman Every Child initiative, the report calls upon the global community to protect the promises made to women, children, and adolescents in the Sustainable Development Goals, to tackle the triple crisis of conflict, climate change and COVID-19 effects, and to invest and commit to restore lost gains for women, children and youth.

The report will be launched at the World Health Summit in Berlin on 18 October 2022 at 09:00 (GMT+2) at a session where the findings will be discussed by world leaders and young people. Embargoed materials will be available on request.

Speakers at the event include:

  • Rt. Hon. Helen Clark, Board Chair, PMNCH
  • H.E. Ms. Kersti Kaljulaid, Former President, Estonia and The UN Secretary General’s Global Advocate for Every Woman Every Child
  • Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director General, WHO
  • Natalia Kanem, Executive Director, UNFPA

The keynote speech of the WHO Director-General only will be livestreamed on our Twitter page and you can join the whole event via Zoom here.
