GFF Launch Event: Reclaim the Gains

Co-hosted by H.E. Macky Sall, Hon. Karina Gould and Ms. Mari Pangestu

The COVID-19 crisis is reversing years of hard-won gains in women, children and adolescent health. One year on, with disrupted health systems and economies severely impacted, women and children in the world’s poorest and most vulnerable countries have been hardest hit by this secondary crisis. To help countries reclaim the gains, the Global Financing Facility for Women, Children and Adolescents (GFF) a partnership hosted at the World Bank is launching a resource mobilization campaign to raise $1.2 billion by the end of 2021 to protect essential health services and strengthen health systems, as countries prepare for the rollout of COVID-19 tools and strive for a resilient and inclusive recovery.

This virtual event will bring together leaders and community representatives and other key stakeholders to share how they are taking bold, smart action to protect essential health services. We will take stock of progress and launch GFF’s ask of $1.2 billion for 2021 that will help support countries to reclaim the gains and accelerate progress for women, children and adolescents.
