We have been present at the PMNCH Partners’ Forum 2014 in Johannesburg, South Africa this week, where close to 200 youth delegates participated and advocated to include youth priorities in the post-2015 agenda. We had the opportunity to be inspired by their leadership and hear their views and recommendations. .

1. The global community has made significant progress in saving the lives of women and children. What do you think stands out as a key accomplishment?
2. What are some broader economic, health and social benefits from investing in women’s and children’s health?
3. Remaining gaps can be solved through partnership. Globally, where is political will and commitment for children’s health needed most?
