The Call To Action Summit 2015 on ending preventable child and maternal deaths was held on 27 August and 28 August 2015 in New Delhi.

The summit was a prelude to the United Nations Summit for the adoption of post-2015 development agenda that will be held in September 2015 in New York.

During the summit, the participants took stock of progress, best practices for ending preventable child and maternal deaths and discussed further steps to be taken in the area.

Further, The Every Woman Every Child (EWEC) movement initiated by the UN Secretary General office was also a pivotal area for deliberations at the Summit.

The summit was co hosted by the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Ethiopia’s Ministry of Health, USAID, UNICEF, The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and Tata Trusts and attended by 24 priority countries that committed to the global Call to Action for Child Survival in June 2012.

India was selected to host the summit for the first time outside the USA because of her huge strides in ending preventable child and maternal deaths in recent times.
