Committing to Child Survival
A Promise Renewed
Committing to Child Survival: A Promise Renewed is a global movement to end preventable child deaths. Under the leadership of participating governments and in support of the United Nations Secretary-General's Every Woman Every Child strategy, A Promise Renewed brings together public, private and civil society actors committed to advocacy and action for maternal, newborn and child survival.
A Promise Renewed emerged from the Child Survival Call to Action, convened in June 2012 by the Governments of Ethiopia, India and the United States, in collaboration with UNICEF. The more than 700 government, civil society and private sector participants who gathered for the Call to Action reaffirmed their shared commitment to scale up progress on child survival, building on the success of the many partnerships, initiatives and interventions that currently exist within and beyond the field of health.
A promise renewed is based on the ethos that child survival is a shared responsibility and everyone — governments, civil society, the private sector and individuals — has a vital contribution to make. Since June 2012, more than 176 governments and many civil society organizations, private sector organizations and individuals have signed a pledge to redouble their efforts, and they are turning these commitments into action and advocacy.
