UNICEF and WHO, in collaboration with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and Johns Hopkins University, developed annual country, regional and global low birthweight estimates for 2000-2015. This is the first time such estimates have been made available globally, making it possible to track progress and support various initiatives including the WHA Nutrition Targets, the Every Newborn Action Plan and the Global Strategy for Women’s Children’s and Adolescents’ Health.
