A Common Cause - Reaching Every Woman and Child through Universal Health Coverage. Rosa G, Wright S and Gugushvili D. (2016)

immage

Countries around the world have committed to a historic ambition: to end preventable child and maternal deaths within a generation.

A Common Cause shows why two key movements in global health – maternal and child health, and Universal Health Coverage – need to join forces to make that ambition a reality.

The report argues for universal access to an integrated continuum of care for women’s, children’s and adolescents’ health, provided through strengthened primary healthcare and referral systems.

Child, Early and Forced Marriage Legislation in 37 Asia-Pacific Countries. Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) and WHO. (2016)

immage

Practices like child, early and forced marriage (CEFM) remain an obstacle to the full achievement of better health for children and adolescents. CEFM is also a human rights violation that endangers health and growth, disrupts education, limits opportunities for empowerment and social development, and increases the risk of exposure to violence and abuse.

A 10 per cent reduction in CEFM could contribute to a 70 per cent reduction in maternal mortality rates and a three per cent decrease in infant mortality in individual countries. Getting married at an earl y age also leads to higher fertility rates, unwanted pregnancies, a higher risk of complications during childbirth, limited educational advancement, and reduced economic earning potential for girls and wome

This study aims to assist parliamentarians in their efforts to end CEFM through legislation, and to improve the health of children and young girls in their countries.

Children: Stop TB Key Populations Brief. Stop TB Partnership. (2016)

immage

Childhood TB has been called a “sentinel event” because it indicates failure on two fronts. First, it signals an ongoing transmission, since the child likely contracted TB from someone close to him or her and who has likely remained untreated. Second, it indicates a wider failure in the system, since it points to the lack of preventative therapy that could have easily stopped the child from developing TB in the first place.

Fact Sheet: Children and HIV. UNAIDS. (2016)

immage

Despite continuing progress in stopping new HIV infections among children there are still major challenges in ensuring access to effective antiretroviral therapy for children living with HIV. The challenges start with diagnosing HIV among children.
Four hundred children become infected with HIV every day; however, In 2015, only 54% of children exposed to HIV in the 21 highest-burden countries were tested for the virus within the recommended two months. This is largely because it requires complex laboratory technology that is often only available at central laboratories.

The State of the World Children 2016: A Fair Chance for Every Child. UNICEF. (2016)

immage

Every child has the right to health, education and protection, and every society has a stake in expanding children’s opportunities in life. Yet, around the world, millions of children are denied a fair chance for no reason other than the country, gender or circumstances into which they are born. The State of the World’s Children 2016 argues that progress for the most disadvantaged children is not only a moral, but also a strategic imperative. Stakeholders have a clear choice to make: invest in accelerated progress for the children being left behind, or face the consequences of a far more divided world by 2030. At the start of a new development agenda, the report concludes with a set of recommendations to help chart the course towards a more equitable world.
