ICCD 2015 (Update 4)

New major partner endorsed the campaign – International Pediatric Association (IPA)ICCD

Dear Members, Colleagues and Friends,

We have a new major partner 

It is with great pleasure and excitement that I inform you that ICCD and the ACT Now Campaign is being supported and proudly endorsed by the International Pediatric Association (www.ipa-world.org). The IPA  is a 105 year old network of 160 National Pediatric Societies, Regional Pediatric Societies, and International Pediatric Specialty Societies, representing all areas of the world.

The IPA works very closely with UN agencies (e.g. UNICEF , WHO etc. ) and other global organizations in advocating and championing child and adolescent health. Over the years, they have contributed immensely to calling attention to the importance of children’s health; they have also shaped and influenced Global Child Health Agenda, Plans and Programs.

Here you can download their very inspiring and compelling endorsement for ICCD and the ACT NOW Campaign (#actnow4kidswithcancer). We encourage you to share it with your members, volunteers, supporters, allies/partners and other key stakeholders in your country.

Those of you who want to engage/invite your local Ministries of Health, other child focused organizations  and civil society organizations (e.g. Rotary International, Lions, etc.) can share this powerful endorsement and letter of support. You may also approach and invite members of IPA to join your ICCD initiatives. Let us know when that happens so we can broadcast and share it.
