February 19th will see the launch of a major new report on child health and well-being by an independent WHO-UNICEF-Lancet Commission. 

Entitled A future for the world’s children?, this is the first comprehensive, independent report to reposition every aspect of child health through the lens of our rapidly changing climate and other existential threats.

It is the result of more than two years of work by 40 child health experts from around the world, led by Her Excellencies Helen Clark, former Prime Minister of New Zealand, and Awa Coll-Seck, Minister of State of Senegal.

It details critical, emerging risks to child health; proposes novel solutions; and calls for urgent action to achieve measurable results.
