Women, children and adolescents account for more than two-thirds of the world’s population, and nearly 80% in some regions. Universal health coverage (UHC) therefore cannot be achieved without realizing women’s, children’s and adolescents’ health. In turn, women’s, children’s and adolescents’ health cannot be achieved without realizing UHC. This message must be loud and clear in the run-up to the High-Level Meeting on 23 September. PMNCH and partner events throughout the week will address what women, children and adolescents in UHC require and the best ways to meet these specific needs.

Awards totaling nearly $600,000 to improve women’s, children’s, and adolescents’ health made to civil society coalitions in nine countries
