In a post in USAID's "IMPACTblog," Ariel Pablos-Mendez, assistant administrator for global health at USAID, provides an overview of India's "Call to Action Summit for Child Survival and Development," which took place last week, writing, "Led by India's Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, the Summit called for an accelerated response to decrease child mortality across the country." Pablos-Mendez highlights the main themes of the summit and continues, "Attendees demonstrated a passionate commitment to mobilize on behalf of India's children -- and to hold each other to account. India's leadership and programmatic success will help galvanize the global response" (2/12).
