Global Financing Facility: Country Led - Jointly Financed
In September 2014, the Governments of Canada, Norway, and the United States, together with the World Bank, joined the United Nations Secretary-General, the President of Tanzania and the United Nations Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for Financing the Health MDGs in announcing the Global Financing Facility in support of Every Woman Every Child (GFF).
Since then, the GFF has brought together a broad set of partners to accelerate efforts to end preventable maternal, newborn, child and adolescent deaths and improve the health and quality of life of women, adolescents and children. It aspires to help prevent up to 3.8 million maternal deaths, 101 million child deaths and 21 million stillbirths in 62 high-burden countries by 2030, to support the UNSG’s renewed Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health and the new Sustainable Development Goals.
In this session voices from the various stakeholder groups engaged with the GFF will update the Global Maternal and Newborn Health community on the progress of to date, including an introduction to the model and the business plan, as well as a status update on countries where the GFF is active.
