Tuesday, September 259:00AM-11:00AM (UNICEF, 22nd Floor, 633 3rd Avenue, New York, NY) Creating a Quality of Care Revolution to Save Lives -
Changing our approach to RMNCH in the Era of UHC
UNICEF, Lancet Global Health Commission on High Quality Health Systems in the SDG EraThe past two decades have marked a “golden age” of global health as the world has
mobilized to reduce maternal, newborn and child mortality. However, while access to
health care has grown in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), quality of care
has lagged. The methods of the past will not address the health challenges we currently
face, including a slow decline in newborn mortality and the rise of non-communicable
diseases and injuries, without high quality health systems. Thousands of mothers,
newborns and children will continue to die and will fail to thrive without a change in the
quality of care they receive.
The recently launched Lancet Global Health Commission on High Quality Health
Systems in the SDG Era report on finds that:
§ quality is a determinant of health
§ quality of care is weak across conditions and countries and worst for the most
§ quality of care needs to be prioritized in the UHC, SDG, and primary care
Join us in a discussion on how we create a revolution in quality of care that will ensure
that every mother and child has access to the quality care that is their right.
