Lives in the Balance: Equity in COVID-19 Recovery

May 17, 2021 08:00 AM - May 18, 2021 11:30 AM

Co-hosted by PMNCH, the GFF, Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, and CORE Group

On 17-18 May, PMNCH, the Global Financing Facility for Women, Children and Adolescents (GFF), Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, and CORE Group will co-host the third Lives in the Balance Summit: Equity in COVID-19 Recovery. The Summit builds on previous Lives in the Balance summits, which revealed the urgent needs of women, children and adolescents during COVID-19, and enabled coordinated action by partners and governments to help meet those needs. At this timely and important event, we will: 

  • Reflect on how well countries have been able to implement equity enhancing strategies to protect the health and wellbeing of women, children and adolescents, particularly those with the least access to social, economic and political power; 
  • Share lessons, tools, and resources on why focusing on women, children and adolescents in national COVID-19 responses is key; 
  • Collaborate by identifying ways to promote equity and realize the PMNCH Call to Action on COVID-19, including aligning partners for common action around the 7 asks; 
  • Act by demonstrating how countries are improving women’s, children’s and adolescents’ health in the context of COVID-19, including making commitments to the COVID-19 Call to Action. 

Your participation in this Summit advocating for equity in the COVID-19 recovery for ALL women, children and adolescents is vital for change. Register today and join the conversation!

Have you developed new tools, innovations or projects related to COVID-19? The Marketplace will spotlight Health Workforce Innovations and aims to create a space for country dialogue, networking and exchanging knowledge, resources and ideas. The marketplace is one of the most interactive events of the summit as we will be listening to stories, best practices and projects that organizations around the world have implemented during this COVID-19 pandemic”
