On Wednesday, October 20, the CSIS Global Health Policy Center hosted Anthony Lake, Executive Director of UNICEF, to discuss UNICEF’s new equity-focused approach to child survival and development. UNICEF’s new approach is based on the recent study “Narrowing the Gaps to Meet the Goals,” which shows that focusing investments on the most disadvantaged children in low-income, high mortality countries is the fastest and most cost-effective way to save lives, narrow disparities and meet many of the Millennium Development Goals. With his colleagues Mickey Chopra and Rudolf Knippenberg, Dr. Lake presented the results of the study and discussed the implications for UNICEF and its partners.
