Ethiopia Child Survival Evidence SummitIn response to A Promise Renewed’s goal to reduce child mortality to 20 per 1,000 live births by 2035, the first regional review and consultation meeting on evidence that points to the effectiveness of Social and Behavior Change Communication (SBCC) in accelerating child survival in Africa was jointly organized by USAID and UNICEF in Addis Ababa on 14-15 January 2013. The consultation coincided with the high-level meeting “African Leadership for Child Survival: A Promise Renewed” which is a commitment made by the Government of Ethiopia, along with India, and the United States of America at the June 2012 Washington D.C. convention of government leaders and public health experts.

The primary aim of this meeting was to present and discuss the preliminary findings of the Africa evidence review-study commissioned by USAID to Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health-Center for Communication Programs, with Dr. Michelle Kaufman serving as lead researcher.
