Purpose of updating Every Newborn coverage targets by 2025
To provide a clear vision that helps countries to accelerate progress to reach coverage targets (2020-2025) and measure our collective progress to end preventable newborn deaths and preventable stillbirth on the path to 2030 Universal Health Coverage (UHC) goals and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 
Purpose of a global open consultation on proposed Every Newborn coverage targets (2020-2025)
The Every Newborn Action Plan (ENAP) was endorsed by 194 countries at the World Health Assembly in 2014 (WHA 67.10). In the development phase, an inclusive consultation process was undertaken. ENAP included coverage targets and milestones only until 2020 and this global consultation on coverage targets for 2020-2025 aims to have the same inclusiveness and transparency.

The target audiences are country and global level policymakers who will undertake the necessary actions and investments. By setting and ensuring progress to collectively agreed coverage targets, we can hold each other to account to end these preventable deaths. Our hope is that all of us will input to shape these targets and will also be part of working to help accelerate progress.

Background information
Countries are working to implement the recommendations of ENAP, a roadmap for action to end preventable newborn mortality and preventable stillbirth. With recommendations of what countries can do better to reduce mortality and morbidity and close equity gaps, ENAP included the following:
1. Newborn mortality and stillbirth reduction targets by 2030 with progress review in 2020 and 2025.
2. Coverage targets for universal health coverage by 2030 with progress review in 2020 and 2025
3. Country and global milestones or actions by 2020.

Since the Every Newborn resolution WHA 67.10 was adopted, the SDGs and Global Strategy for Women's, Children’s and Adolescents Health have been developed and endorsed; the newborn mortality target is in both and the stillbirth target is in the Global Strategy. UHC targets also prioritize the importance of a life-course approach and a healthy start. The target year is now clearly 2030, whereas in 2014 we were uncertain between 2030 and 2035, so ENAP included both years. Therefore, no change is needed for the mortality targets, other than leaving out the 2035 one.

Countries are actively implementing the recommendations set out in ENAP and tracking progress. Many countries are making steady progress but there remain crucial challenges. Humanitarian and fragile settings are the most left behind. Stillbirth attention and progress is  lacking. New opportunities have arisen with a major focus and innovation for hospital care of small and sick newborns which is essential to reach the NMR target of 12, meaning a crucial need for systematic implementation learning between countries. Improving and using routine data to drive coverage and quality is crucial over the next decade. 
To accelerate progress to reach mortality targets by 2030, it is important that the coverage targets for key aspects of newborn health to achieve UHC are set. Hence, in order provide this clearer vision to countries, the Every Newborn Management Team, chaired by WHO and UNICEF, have reviewed evidence and data in order to propose coverage targets to achieve by 2025.
