Please join us for the launch of the latest Countdown to 2030 national, equity and early childhood development profiles and learn how these country profiles can be used for programming, advocacy, and accountability. The webinar will also present the first set of Countdown to 2030 regional profiles that cover the continuum of care and will explain how the Countdown profiles complement the Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health Profiles. Register here.

The equity profiles, the reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health (RMNCAH) national and regional profiles, and the childhood development profiles have been updated with 2022 data. The 90-minute webinar will include a question and answer session as well as a brief discussion of each the various profiles, as well as some strategies as to how to use the information in the profiles for actions and decision-making.

The RMNCAH country profiles are presented as a 3-page document, with a bonus fourth page. The first page of indicators all focus on women’s, children’s, and adolescent health, with an added angle of maternal mortality and neonatal rates. This data, combined with demographic data from across the county allows for a comprehensive look at how this data maps across the country. The second page looks at nutrition and coverage, and looks at if the coverage is equitable as well. The third page gives a glance at the drivers of said coverage – a look towards more policy and financing data. On the bonus page there is a visualization of the causes of deaths in the countries, which is also separated by age range.
