Maternal, Newborn, and Child Survival Shines at 77th World Health Assembly

WHA-77 resolution to accelerate progress towards reducing maternal, newborn, and child mortality.

The World Health Organization’s 77th World Health Assembly passed a resolution calling on countries to bolster maternal and child health by expanding universal healthcare and strengthening primary healthcare. The WHA resolution, led by Somalia, marks the WHO’s first significant action to tackle the leading causes of maternal and child deaths in nearly a decade, following the adoption of the Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health in 2015. The resolution underscores the need for well-stocked facilities, trained health workers, safe water and sanitation, and comprehensive health care services for women and children.
