Ethiopia and India are set to host the 2017 Acting on the Call Conference (AOTC) in Addis Ababa from August 24th to 25th, 2017. Under the theme “Overcoming Critical Barriers to Maternal and Child Survival, the conference is a platform for ministers, high level policy makers, donors and private businesspeople from around the world to advance efforts to save pregnant women and children.
The conference is designed to celebrate the progress to date, share the best practices and lessons learned and identify key steps in reaching the 2030 target of the Sustainable Development Goals as laid out in the Global Strategy for pregnant women’s, children’s and adolescent’s health. The conference will build upon the previous four such conferences, specifically recalling the commitment made at the 2015 meeting in New Delhi to accelerate efforts.
“Ethiopia has made tremendous strides in advancing maternal and child health and improving the health status of the country in the past two decades. The government strongly believes that the effort and resources invested in alleviating major critical barriers will need to be strengthened. While we need to celebrate our success, we also need a new vision, new targets and new frontiers,” said Pro. Yifru Berhan, Minister of Health.
A commitment document called the Addis Ababa declaration is also expected to be signed and adopted by participating companies. The document is to reaffirm the commitments made to maternal and child health during previous conferences and is expected to serve as a push to achieve the targets set until 2030.
“We believe that the signing of this declaration will put forward the needed drive to implement targets that have been set,” the minister also stated.
The conference is expected to attract 500 delegates from around the world with ministry of health representatives from more than 25 countries.
