On June 14th, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will deliver remarks at Child Survival: Call to Action – a global event co-convened by the United States, India, and Ethiopia in collaboration with UNICEF announcing a new partnership to end preventable child deaths. Over the last 50 years, child mortality has been reduced by 70 percent. More than 7 million children, however, will die this year before they reach their 5th birthday. Focused on ending preventable child death through survival of newborns, children, and mothers, the two-day call to action will convene 700 prominent leaders from government, the private sector, and civil society to kick off a long-term, business-like effort to save children’s lives.

The event will begin at 8:30 a.m. at Georgetown University with Secretary Clinton’s remarks at approximately 9:20 a.m.

Pre-set time for video cameras: 7:30 a.m. at Healy Hall, Georgetown University, 37th and O Street NW, Washington, DC.

Final access time for journalists and still photographers: 8:00 a.m. at Healy Hall, Georgetown University, 37th and O Street NW, Washington, DC.

Interested media must be registered in advance of the event. For more information and to register, please contact Jeffrey Springer at 5thBDay@usaid.gov
