Maternity Worldwide is a member of The Partnership for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health. The Partnership (PMNCH) joins the reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health (RMNCH) communities into an alliance of more than 500 members, across seven constituencies: academic, research and teaching institutions; donors and foundations; health-care professionals; multilateral agencies; non-governmental organizations; partner countries; and the private sector. Working together, the goal of the Partnership is a world in which all women, newborns, children and adolescents not only are healthy, but thrive.
The Partnership enables partners to share strategies, align objectives and resources, and agree on interventions to achieve more together than they would be able to achieve individually.
The achievement of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) 4 and 5, to reduce child mortality and improve maternal health, with women and children enabled to realize their right to the highest attainable standard of health in the years to 2015 and beyond.
Supporting partners to align their strategic directions and catalyze collective action to achieve universal access to comprehensive, high-quality reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health care.
To be an institutional platform bringing together and enhancing the interaction of partners focused on improving the health of women and children, working across the reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health continuum of care. In essence, The Partnership enables members to share strategies, align objectives and resources, and agree on interventions to achieve more together than they would have been able to achieve individually.
The Partnership is governed by a Board, and administered by a Secretariat hosted at the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland. The Partners’ Forum brings together all PMNCH members together on a regular basis.
