  • Number of new users of family planning. The goal is 43 million new users;
  • Number of new mothers supported by a skilled birth attendant. The goal is 19 million more women;
  • Number of additional treatments for neonatal infections. The goal is 2.2 million more treatments;
  • Number of newborns exclusively breastfed for the first six months of life. The goal is 21.9 million more infants.

  • Number of additional health workers. The goal is between 2.5 and 3.5 million new workers, including nurses, midwives, physicians, technicians, community health workers, and administrative staff.
