Abstract

Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, global progress towards the 2030 Every Woman Every Child (EWEC) Global Strategy for Women's, Children's and Adolescents' Health targets to save the lives of women and children was already lagging by around 20%.1 Now, the global pandemic is making a bad situation even worse, as some countries divert resources away from essential services.
