If the updated Global Strategy is truly to move the world toward the goal of ending preventable child and maternal death within a generation, and to ensure that babies and children survive, thrive and reach their full potential, then even the poorest countries must begin to build health systems and infrastructure that go beyond today's top killers of children, and address all forms of preventable child death and disability. That includes newborn screening for congenital anomalies and metabolic disorders.

Globally, congenital anomalies and preterm birth are important causes of childhood death, chronic illness, and disability in many countries. Unfortunately, most children in the developing world do not have access to newborn screening for treatable disorders at birth. Congenital anomalies cause 4 million of these babies die before their 5th birthday, and of those who survive, many face life-long disability.  Many countries, even among the poorest, see the need for newborn screening and are beginning to develop newborn screening programs, but lack institutional and donor support. Including comprehensive, universal newborn screening as a separate priority in the new Global Strategy is an important step. Children with congential disorders have the same right to life, health, and chance to succeed as any other child.

80% of the world population is influenced by faith. If change is to be effected then the faith communities around the world need to be consulted and engaged. Faith leaders are highly influential especially where attitudes are involved.

Faith communities have a huge footprint accross the world and can be engaged to educate about health and human rights, not to mention the part they play in providing health care services to some of the most vulnerable populations around the world

Faith Based Organizations and their leaders should play a big role in promoting children's, adolescents and women's health and health seeking rights to the community they serve as they serve the majority of people in the community. This have to be done during their gatherings and also in their scope of work.

Collecting reliable data remains key for a better monitoring and evaluation framework to be assessed. Capacity building for health volunteers, advocates and health care workers. Community participation should be strongly encouraged.

Stakeholders (teachers, health workers social workers), should we be “adolescence friendly” coupled With a good monitoring mechanism and evaluation in place, gender and child issues can be curbed. They must be made to understand why a “no” is not a half no but a strong NO when they are in doubt. A “yes” must not be a yes to please others.

Quality data is essential for ensuring better evidence to track progress and redirect resources based on need.  Skills building in-country to package evidence into meaningful formats for a variety of audiences will facilitate its uptake by policy-makers, advocates, decision-makers, health providers and the public. Finally ensuring quality and reliable data is reviewed/fed into planning and budgeting cycles is critical to ensure evidence based responses in driving change.

Integrating adolescent friendly services into existing health systems is needed.  Adolescents need a safe and comfortable space to raise concerns, discuss issues and ensure their health needs are adequately addressed. The negotiation of sexual behaviour is a skill which should be imparted on adolescents,  In particular, how gender roles and norms shape this negotiation and ways in which men and women can negotiate risk reduction strategies in the context of gender disparities.

It makes great sense to combine a rights approach with a look at the total market for care, products and human resources for maternal and child health (as well as newborn and adolescent health).  The recent development of the Global Financing Facility reminds the community that it makes a great deal of sense and increases the probability of impact on a significant scale if we look at the RMNCAH issues from a more integrated perspective.

Let us all give girls and boys who soon will become men and women of reproductive age (MWRA) a priority! In my country how I wish that the government together with the academe shall encourage these boys and girls to attend special sessions on the roles and responsibilities of being a husband a a wife, and become parents!
