PMNCH 2014 Partners’ Forum

May 21 @ 3:47 pm EDT

PMNCH 2014 Partners’ Forum

2014 Partners’ Forum to Unite Champions from more than 40 countries Around Action Plan for Women’s and Children’s Health

30 JUNE – 1 JULY

Sandton Convention Centre

Johannesburg, South Africa

From June 30 – July 1, 2014, global health professionals, policy makers, business leaders, advocates and youth leaders will gather for the third Partners’ Forum in Johannesburg, South Africa. The meeting will be a pivotal moment to review progress, identify factors for success, and agree on commitments for action to help women, newborns, children and adolescents survive and thrive. For example, new investments in innovation and expanded access to relatively simple and well-known interventions, like midwifery services, can improve health, save lives, and lead to sustained development.

The Forum will be chaired by Graça Machel, Chair of The Partnership for Maternal, Newborn & Child Health (PMNCH) and Ambassador for A Promise Renewed. The meeting will be hosted by the Government of South Africa in partnership with PMNCH; USAID and UNICEF for A Promise Renewed; Countdown to 2015; and the independent Expert Review Group.   With new global commitments, partners working across health and related fields will be well-positioned to use the Johannesburg Forum to unite global efforts to prioritize action and accountability for the health and well-being of every woman and every child.

Confirmed speakers for the Partners’ Forum include Prime Minister Erna Solberg of Norway, co-chair, Millennium Development Goals Advocacy Group; Professor Onyebuchi Chukwu, Honourable Minister of Health, Federal Republic of Nigeria; HRH Princess Sarah Zeid of Jordan; Margaret Chan, Director-General, World Health Organization; Philippe Douste-Blazy, Special Advisor to the United Nations Secretary-General on Innovative Finance for Development; and Christopher Elias, President for Global Development, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
