The independent Expert Review Group (iERG) is re-launching the Call for submission of documentation on good practices and obstacles. These materials will inform and complement our review and analysis for our second report - due in September, 2013 – that will assess progress related to the implementation of the Global Strategy and the recommendations of the UN Commission on Information and Accountability for Women’s and Children’s Health.

Topics

iERG is particularly interested to receive submissions on the following themes related to delivery of promises and implementation of the Commission's recommendations:

iERG 2013 focus areas include: adolescents; national accountability mechanisms in 75 priority countries; human rights; recommendation and transparency; and any other subjects relevant to the work of the iERG (see Terms of Reference).

Other topics of interest include: RMNCH in fragile countries and emergency situations, donor and government accountability, role of private sector.

Call for case studies

For the iERG 2013 report

Submit your case study for the next iERG 2013 report. The independent Expert Review Group (iERG) calls for evidence-based case studies that demonstrate progress in a particular RMNCH area related to the UN Global Strategy or the UN Commission on Information and Accountability for Women’s and Children’s Health.

Specific topics of the 2013 report include adolescents, national accountability mechanisms in 75 priority countries, human rights and transparency. We are equally interested to showcase successes and highlight challenges in saving lives of women and children in fragile countries and emergencies as well as to study the role of the private sector in achieving higher standards for RMNCH.
