Call to Action: Child Survival and Development for Every Child in India
7-9 February 2013
Despite steady progress in child health, India is still among the top four that account for 50% of global under-five mortality. In this context, India co-convened the June 2012 Global Call to Action on child survival along with Ethiopia and United States of America. At this follow-up summit, ministers from central and state governments, leaders from the private sector, civil society, media and multilateral organizations, academia and funding agencies will arrive at a set of agreed actions, commitments, promote accountability and engage high burden states to enable the Indian government to launch a strategic roadmap for accelerating child survival and development in the near future and beyond 2015.
