Theme: A Promising Start For A Solid Future

Every child in the world deserves a ‘Promising Start for a Solid Future’ and this will be the overall theme of this conference, because where you are born should not make a difference in today’s world. Every child should have the right to be born and grow up in happy and healthy surroundings.
