Call for commitments towards the Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health 2.0

The Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health 2.0 will launch at the UN General Assembly in September 2015. In the lead up to the Strategy’s launch, the UN Secretary-General’s Office is welcoming commitments to the updated Global Strategy. A paradigm shift in health care delivery that follows from adoption of the post-2015 SDGs calls for commensurate change in how we plan, educate, deploy and reward health workers. To this end, GHWA calls upon and encourages its members and partners to make health workforce commitments in support of the Global Strategy.
