This year, leaders from across the world will decide on a new set of goals which will replace the expiring Millennium Development Goals. Their decisions will affect generations to come and the future of all children.
They need to stop at nothing and deliver goals that will put an end to preventable deaths of children. We want to see zero child preventable deaths by 2030, but to reach that, leaders must:
- identify the most vulnerable children and provide them with resources
- increase investment in quality, accessible health services with sufficient trained staff
- improve nutrition, especially in the first 1,000 days
- listen to children
