Global Child Survival Efforts: Every Child Deserves a Fifth Birthday

Global Child Survival Efforts: Every Child Deserves a Fifth Birthday

On April 23, the Kaiser Family Foundation held a briefing to explore global efforts to help more children live to age 5 – a milestone birthday, after which children are far more likely to survive to adulthood. The event featured remarks by USAID Administrator Rajiv Shah on U.S. efforts to help children reach their fifth birthdays, preceded by a panel discussion that examined where progress is being made, financial challenges and constraints, and opportunities for further engagement by the U.S. and others.

Panelists included Amanda Glassman, Director of Global Health Policy at the Center for Global Development; Michael McCurry, a partner at Public Strategies Washington, Inc.; Ariel Pablos-Méndez, Assistant Administrator for Global Health at USAID; and Caryl Stern, President and CEO of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF. Foundation Vice President and Director of Global Health & HIV Policy Jen Kates moderated the discussion.
