Owning It: Turning immunisation commitments into action

26 April 2017
Immunisation rates are higher than they have ever been, reaching 86% in 2015. However, one in seven children are still missing out of the most basic vaccines and many more are missing out on the full range of recommended vaccines. In 2012 all WHO member states agreed to ambitious immunisation goals to drive global progress towards universal immunisation coverage, but as we stand in 2017, we are dramatically off track. How can country ownership can help turn immunisation commitments into action...

TB community call on the G20 for global leadership on TB

16 March 2017

In the coming months, Health Ministers and Heads of State at the G7 and G20 will be discussing antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and the position of tuberculosis within it. In addition to being the world’s leading infectious killer, TB is one of the world’s leading drug-resistant threats. It is responsible for one-in-three deaths from AMR and is the only major airborne form of AMR.

Tackling the complexities of TB R&D will require a comprehensive mechanism with high level political...

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...

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....

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.
