MCHIP Project Close-out Event
Critical Concepts for Ending Preventable Child and Maternal Deaths
Program Learning and Recommendations on Scale, Quality and Community from USAID’s Flagship Maternal and Child Health Integrated Program
On June 26th, more than 400 colleagues — including Ministers of Health from 23 countries and USAID Administrator Dr. Rajiv Shah — gathered at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, D.C., to celebrate MCHIP’s successes. Since 2008, in over 50 developing countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, the Program has worked to improve the health of women and their families. MCHIP supported programming in maternal, newborn and child health, immunization, family planning, nutrition, malaria and HIV/AIDS, and has been successful in taking high-level impact interventions to scale around the world.
Although the strategies for implementation have varied widely from country to country, dependent on contextual factors such as the strength of the health system, the relationship with the government, cultural factors, geography, etc., several key themes, were critical for success, regardless of region or intervention. During this event, we explored learning on three key themes-scale up, community level activities, and quality of service provision-from the broad experiences of MCHIP, as well as the broader reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health community.
