Countdown 2030Countdown to 2030 for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health (or, Countdown) builds upon the successes of the Countdown to 2015 effort. It is a multi-stakeholder global movement that aims to

  1. accelerate the momentum to achieve the targets of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for ending preventable maternal, newborn and child deaths; and
  2. catalyze efforts to achieve the vision of the Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health.  

Countdown focuses on

Countdown to 2030 is managed by a set of core staff, most of who are based at the Institute for International Programs at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

The analytical work of Countdown is carried out by 3 technical working groups (coverage, equity and drivers). The Coverage Technical Working Group (CTWG), co-chaired by the Data and Analytics Division of UNICEF-New York and the Institute for International Programs at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, conducts the analysis for the coverage indicators reported in Countdown’s global report and country profiles. The working group is also undertaking a series of secondary analyses on coverage of effective interventions, including improving measurement of effective coverage, and provides technical support to Countdown’s regional and country-level capacity building activities.

Funding
