Policies - Child and adolescent health
The year 2006 saw the development by WHO, UNICEF and the World Bank of a Regional Child Survival Strategy. It aims to scale up a defined set of effective child survival interventions in African countries, including antenatal care, newborn care, appropriate infant feeding, immunization, management of common childhood illnesses and the use of ITNs. By the end 2009, 27 countries had developed or updated national child survival policies, strategies or plans, compared to only 11 in 2007.
