10th Annual PMNCH Accountability Breakfast

September 22 @ 7:30 am - 9:00 am EDT

Organized by Partnership for Maternal, Newborn & Child Health (PMNCH)

10th Annual PMNCH Accountability Breakfast

September 22, 2021

RSVP

This year’s annual PMNCH Accountability Breakfast focuses on achieving greater equity for women, children and adolescents in Africa.

More than two-thirds of the world’s maternal deaths occur in the Sub-Saharan region, as well as more than half of child deaths globally. Almost one in five women in Sub-Saharan Africa face unmet needs for family planning. Now in the COVID-19 era, injustices have been further accentuated. Less than 3% of adults in Africa are fully vaccinated, and 75% of the world’s vaccination supply is held by only 10 countries – none in Africa.

The 2021 PMNCH Accountability Breakfast will focus on innovative solutions to addressing injustices and improving well-being in Sub-Saharan Africa, including through new country-led financing, policy and service delivery commitments. These include digital solutions for improved accountability and action, as well as youth-led action to demand universal health coverage and greater citizen participation in line with the seven asks of the PMNCH Call to Action on COVID-19 and the Call to Action on Adolescent Well-Being.
