“To achieve optimal health and survival of the new-born, mother, and child, the MENA region must focus on scaling up seamless coverage of live-saving, essential interventions across the continuum of care. In addition, frameworks such as the Every New-born Action Plan (ENAP) are being scaled up at the regional and national levels. The ENAP strategic initiative sets objectives, principles and frameworks to end preventable new-born deaths and stillbirths by 2035. Scaling up equitable coverage of immunization services in all countries and ensuring an effective vaccine management system remains a priority”, she added.
