Technical guidance for prioritizing adolescent health
Every Woman Every Child
Every Woman Every Child is an unprecedented global effort that mobilizes and intensifies international and national action to address the major health challenges facing women, children and adolescents. It envisions a world in which every woman, child and adolescent, everywhere, can not only realize their rights to physical and mental health and wellbeing, but also achieve their full potential, seize opportunities, and participate fully in shaping more inclusive, resilient, prosperous and sustainable societies.
EWEC puts into action the Global Strategy for Women’s Children’s and Adolescents’ Health, fostering its implementation through three pillars:
- Survive (ending preventable deaths),
- Thrive (ensuring health and wellbeing) and
- Transform (expanding enabling environments).
The Global Strategy provides a holistic view, with recommendations going beyond survival and drawing linkages to other areas, including nutrition, water and sanitation and education.
