In less than six months, the world will adopt the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), renewing global development efforts for all nations. This brief addresses actions needed between now and September 2015 to ensure that global and national monitoring frameworks include relevant indicators for children and adolescents. It builds on a 2014 policy brief, “Sustaining Human Development: Leveraging Early Life Opportunities to Prevent and Control NCDs” developed jointly by NCD Child, the NCD Alliance, the International Society of Developmental Origins of Health and Disease, and the Partnership for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health. This brief is designed to be used with the NCD Alliance Advocacy Tool Kit, which can be found online.
