Since the Call to Action event, 172 countries have signed the A Promise Renewed pledge to accelerate declines in child deaths. More than 400 civil society and faith-based organizations and more than 2,000 individuals have also pledged support. Each signature represents a renewed commitment to give every child the best possible start in life. Governments are leading the effort to convene policymakers, technical experts, and development partners in a concerted effort to scale up high-impact strategies for maternal, newborn, and child survival. CORE Group is proud to be a signatory.
