Measurement and accountability for maternal, newborn and child health: preparing for 2030

published 17 February 2020

IDEAS is happy to convene a meeting of measurement experts hosted by the African Population and Health Research Center taking place in Nairobi from the 24th to the 25th of February 2020.

During the two day meeting colleagues from around the world aim to examine the measurement practises that support the reproductive, maternal, newborn, child, adolescent and nutrition (RMNCA+N) health agenda.

This 2020 meeting builds on an initial meeting held in 2015 that identified five principles to guide measurement at the transition point from the Millennium Development Goals to the Sustainable Development Goals (watch the video below for a summary of the 2015 meeting).

Now, five years later, we look forward to celebrating the progress that has been made since 2015, while reflecting on what more needs to be done to support progress in country-level measurement and accountability for health.
