Countdown

COUNTDOWN TO 2015 AND COUNTDOWN TO 2030

Staff at the ICEH were founding members of the Countdown to 2015: Maternal, Newborn and Child Survival initiative aimed at monitoring population coverage with effective interventions against the main causes of death of mother and children. The Countdown was a multi-stakeholder initiative aimed at monitoring progress toward the Millennium Development Goals numbers 4 (Child Survival) and 5 (Maternal Health). The ICEH coordinated the Equity Technical Working Group of the Countdown to 2015, and produced all disaggregated analyses included in their website and global reports.

With the launch of the Sustainable Development Goals in 2015, the Countdown to 2030 initiative was launched with similar objectives to those of the Countdown to 2015, and the ICEH is playing a dual role: as the lead institution for the Equity Technical Working Group, and as the Countdown Regional Hub for Latin America and the Caribbean.
