This post discusses the importance of quality data related to women’s and children’s health. The post notes, “Poor, inconsistent data could be seriously hindering progress towards better health and well-being worldwide — and the problem is particularly prevalent where women and children are concerned. Only by making changes is progress likely to come about, and a new data ecosystem is needed to ensure SDGs are attainable and incentivize progress. This will require investment in data generation, analysis, and communication” (1/10).
