Organized by the Global Financing Facility

October 11
5:30 PM – 7:30 PM (Central Indonesia Time)
Bali, Indonesia


Accelerating progress on human capital investments now is crucial to ensuring countries can compete in the 21st century.

The Global Financing Facility (GFF) in support of Every Woman Every Child, the health financing platform for the World Bank’s Human Capital Projectis currently working in 27 countries to close the financing gap for women, children and adolescents’ health and nutrition. With promising early progress in countries and skyrocketing demand for GFF support, the GFF is aiming to expand to a total of 50 countries with the greatest health and nutrition needs over the next five years.

Join the discussion at the World Bank Group-IMF Annual Meetings in Bali, Indonesia, to discuss how investments in the health and nutrition of women, children and adolescents can accelerate progress and save lives today, while helping countries build human capital for the future. The event will feature Kristalina Georgieva, CEO, World Bank, Melinda Gates, Co-Chair, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and other speakers.

The event will be webcast at live.worldbank.org.
