Mapping Global Leadership in Child Health


Improved child health remains an important aspiration at the global level with the goal to transform the child health agenda to reach the vision for 2030. This time is a turning point and a good opportunity for child health advocates to make changes that enhance progress.

The aim of this study was to better understand both the evolution of child health as a global health issue since the year 2000 as well as its network of stakeholders and leaders. Building on this understanding, we explore how leadership might be strengthened and child health repositioned by the community to attain better outcomes in the current time period. For the study, we reviewed published literature and other reports on global child health policy, child health programs, funding, and global health partnerships. We also conducted over 30 in-depth interviews of child health experts and stakeholders from donors, development partners, and nongovernmental organizations. This report was completed in April 2016.
