The Independent Accountability Panel (IAP) hosted a session at Women Deliver entitled Accountability for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health: The Every Woman Every Child Model. In this hearing style session the panellists shared information on the work of the IAP and gathered inputs and suggestions from the audience on the work of the panel.


The session was moderated by Dakshitha Wickremarathne, IAP member, and included introductions from:

  • Nana Taona Kuo,Executive Office of the UN Secretary General
  • Dr Sania Nishtar, IAP Chair
  • Carmen Barosso, IAP member and previous Independent Expert Review Group (iERG) member

Audience members were asked to share their perspectives, priorities and recommendations for the IAP. For those unable to attend in person, questions and messages can be tweeted with #IAPEWEC.

The IAP will use this feedback to inform and shape the first report, which is due to be published in September 2016. The 2016 report will be an interim product, to highlight emerging issues since the preparation of the Strategy, identify key themes for the 2017 report and focus on any critical gaps in data and analysis which the Panel has identified. The 2016 report will also make any necessary recommendations and observations on harmonization of indicators and reporting by development partners.
