For the first time – through the combined efforts of USAID and UNICEF – this report provides quantitative estimates of the value of investing in strengthening health systems in terms of the lives that will be saved. In previous Acting on the Call reports, we imagined a world where countries could scale up high impact maternal and child health interventions at rates equal to those previously achieved by “best performers.” Now we show how the scale-up of health systems interventions, chosen for their country-specific feasibility, are an essential element of achieving those ambitious outcomes.
