About “A Promise Renewed”
“A Promise Renewed”, initiated by UNICEF, builds on the fact, that for the first time in history, we have the available knowledge and technologies to reach the world’s most marginalized children with life-saving interventions, calling for action, to deliver on long-standing commitment to end preventable child deaths.
By working together with renewed determination, we can accelerate declines in child and maternal mortality, enabling more countries to achieve Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) 4 and 5 by 2015 and sustaining the momentum well into the future.
