The Child Health Task Force (TF) Secretariat organized its first Steering Committee (SC) meeting of the year on February 1–2, 2023 in Washington, DC at the JSI office.
The overall aim of the meeting was to assess progress in implementing the TF’s five-year strategic plan and define future priorities to advance the child health agenda.
The specific objectives included:
- Advance the vision for the Child Survival Action (CSA) initiative by providing input into the plans and strategic direction (short-, medium-, and long-term) of the three thematic areas: country engagement, results framework/accountability, and advocacy.
- Strengthen the TF by agreeing on next steps to convene the members during a virtual conference in June to network, share knowledge and tools, and build capacity to implement programs.
- Review the findings of the 2022 annual membership survey, and use the members’ feedback to define actions to improve the TF and align with priorities for 2023.
This report describes highlights from the meeting including key agreed-upon next steps. A detailed agenda and presentation slides are attached herewith.
