Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2016, 9-10:30 a.m. EDT

With the ever increasing attention on efforts to improve women’s and children’s health, major achievements have been made to reducing child mortality and improving maternal health. However, women and girls still remain particularly vulnerable to sexual and gender-based violence in humanitarian crises, refugee camps, war or natural disasters.

The renewed Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents' Health calls on all humanitarian and development actors to redouble their efforts and to work better together to build health and resilience among those living in these fragile and volatile circumstances.

Join us in a webinar to learn more about the pressing issues they face and to discuss a way forward to ensure they are able to survive, thrive and transform. This is the first in a webinar series — New Evidence to Bend the Curve of Progress for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents' Health — that will explore the latest evidence and recommended interventions on how to improve the health of women, children and adolescents.

Agenda
• Welcome and introductions — Emanuele Capobianco, deputy executive director, The Partnership for Maternal, Newborn & Child Health
• Taking stock of the challenge to women's, children's and adolescents' health: Evidence to date and gaps
• Realities on the ground: Success and challenges in sexual, reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health delivery (Country perspectives from Afghanistan and Syria)
