Countdown to 2030: Achievements and Impact

Countdown has a unique role to play in international and national efforts to improve women’s, children’s, and adolescents’ health. It seeks to provide clear and comprehensible data and analysis on key evidence-based interventions, to promote effective action, and to strengthen efforts to hold governments and development partners accountable for fulfilling their commitments to the Sustainable Development Goals (2016-2030) and the Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health.

Countdown to 2030 was launched in September 2016, and its achievements to date include:

  • Establishing Countdown regional network initiatives
    • Latin America and the Caribbean (supported by the Federal University of Pelotas in Brazil)
    • East and Southern Africa (supported by Africa Population Health Research Centre (APHRC) in Nairobi, Kenya)
    • West and Central Africa supported by West African Health Organization (WAHO) in Bobo-Dioulasso in Burkina Faso
