The Lancet: Women’s, children’s, and adolescents’ health: who will lead?
Editorial Board

“…In less than a month in Delhi, India (Feb. 26–27), a consultation will take place on transitioning the Global Strategy for Women’s and Children’s Health (2010-15) into a post-2015 environment. … Although these changes should ensure a much stronger post-2015 environment for women and children, some issues still need to be addressed. First, the incorporation of existing child health initiatives into the global strategy. … The second issue … is global governance. A contest exists between the major players, and who is leading and coordinating is unclear. … The upcoming Delhi meeting presents an opportunity to review progress and, more importantly, fix the existing global leadership vacuum for women, children, and adolescents…” (1/31).
