From Donor Funding to Domestic Leaders

9 January 2017

We will only achieve universal immunisation when countries themselves prioritise and take ownership of their immunisation programmes. Dedicated, long term, and sustainable domestic finance as part of an increasing health budget, Government leadership, and efficient programme and policy and implementation, are the key components of country ownership and reaching every child with all WHO recommended vaccines.

In this short briefing, we focus on the role of political will in driving...

Improving Nutrition and Health for Pregnant and Lactating Women

30 November 2016

Nutrition for women in pre-pregnancy, pregnancy, and over the first two years of the child’s life is of utmost importance for the survival, health and development of mothers and their children . In pregnancy, requirements of energy, protein, and essential micronutrients are increased not only to maintain the mother’s own health, but to also support optimal physical and brain development in the foetus and thereafter in the young child. Thus there is...

Improving Nutrition and Health among Infants and Young Children

30 November 2016

Physical growth and brain development takes place most rapidly during childhood, particularly during the first two years of life. It is essential from birth that children are provided a diet which fully meets their nutritional requirements. Good nutrition must be accompanied by interventions to prevent illness, such as essential immunization. To maximise health and development in this group, nutrition must be integrated within policy and programmes...

Improving Nutrition and Health for Adolescents

30 November 2016

Nutritional requirements increase in adolescence (10-19 years). These increases are vital to enable adolescents to reach their full physical, cognitive and development potential in adulthood. Good nutrition also contributes significantly to reducing episodes of illness and improving school retention and concentration. To maximise health and development in this group, nutrition must be integrated within policy and programmes targeting adolescents....

In this briefing we show how the 'Pro-Poor Principles for...

Weathering a Risky Climate: the role of insurance in reducing vulnerability to extreme weather

2 May 2016

The people on the frontlines of the climate crisis are the world’s poorest and most vulnerable communities. Insurance can play an important role in protecting families from falling into poverty after extreme weather shocks, promoting more secure livelihoods, and transforming society's response towards more proactive management of climate risks. In this report, we present a new set of 'Pro-Poor Principles for Climate Risk Insurance', as a gold standard by which to evaluate donor investments, together with a collection of case-studies demonstrating the impacts of groundbreaking climate risk insurance initiatives.

One Last Push

It looks at the financial requirements to implement the Polio Eradication and Endgame Strategic Plan and how it is proposed that money will be spent.

Universal Immunisation Coverage: Further, Faster, Fairer

25 April 2016

Progress on routine immunisation rates has stalled and inequities persist. This scorecard, a joint publication with Save the Children, highlights the countries where children are missing out and the considerable challenges that must be tackled to address inequalities and exclusion on the path to achieve universal immunisation coverage.

Putting Immunisation at the Heart of Health Systems

25 April 2016

Children who miss out on immunisation are more likely to miss out on all health interventions. Routine immunisation can strengthen the whole system, increase equitable access to many other health services and should be at the heart of a health system. In this short briefing, we highlight polio as an example to show the benefits immunisation campaigns can have on routine immunisation coverage and the wider health system.
