Every Woman Every Child (EWEC) is global movement launched by The Secretary-General of the United Nations, Ban-Ki-moon for Women’s and Children’s Health in 2010.

This movement mobilizes and intensifies international and national action by governments, multi laterals, the private sector and civil society to address the major health challenges facing women and children. The movement puts into action the Global Strategy for Women’s and Children’s Health.

Every Woman Every Child provides a new opportunity to improve the health of hundreds of millions of women and children around the world, and in so doing, to improve the lives of all people. The health of women and children is critically important to almost every area of human development and progress, and directly impacts our success in achieving all of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), adopted by world leaders in 2000.

Research has conclusively demonstrated that the health of women and children is the cornerstone of public health. Healthy women and children create healthy societies. Healthy societies, in turn, are the foundation upon which nations build successful economies and create prosperity for their people. And prosperity, as we know, is essential to political stability and social harmony.

Globally, progress towards MDGs 4 and 5 picked up pace. Between 1990 and 2013, child mortality fell by 49% and maternal mortality by 45%. Remarkable progress has been made on MDG 6 to combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases.
