There is new urgency and potential to deliver leadership on the process of global estimation of women's and children's health.
Recent controversies over global estimates highlight fundamental questions about the performance of the “suppliers” of the figures and the needs of the “clients”.
Stakeholders in the process are now even more diverse, and include country governments, bilateral and multi-lateral agencies, academics, professional associations, and non-governmental organisations, and newer members from global philanthropic organisations and the business community.
We propose responsible estimation of global health, which is stakeholder-centric, accountable, and transparent, and which has a clear leader.
