Delivering on health workers, food, security, vaccines for all: how the G8 can save more children's lives in 2011

As world leaders prepare to meet for the G8 Summit in Deauville, Save the Children has set out four priorities that the G8 should adopt in order to save more children’s lives. Top priorities for the G8 summit in Deauville are: 1. Increase the number of health workers by supporting an event on health workers at the UN General Assembly and helping to close the global health worker shortage; 2. Deliver on food security and nutrition commitments by fully funding the L’Aquila Food Security Initiative and invest in communities at highest risk of food insecurity and malnutrition; 3. Scale up access to vaccines by making new commitments at the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI) pledging conference to fill the financing gap for vaccines; and 4. Reduce inequity by monitoring the G8’s efforts to reach the poorest and most vulnerable women and children.
