Description and results

Description

The project aims to improve maternal, newborn, and child health and nutrition practices, and strengthen local health systems in 12 districts in the Mopti Region of Mali, the province of Cabo Delgado in Mozambique, and the province of Gilgit-Baltistan in Pakistan. Using a community-based approach, the project aims to increase health centre coverage, improve the skills of government health management and medical staff and community health workers, and contribute to reduce malnutrition amongst women and young children. Expected direct beneficiaries include 363,709 women, 196,857 children, and 274 health facility workers. Project activities include: training health care providers in obstetric care, and child health and nutrition; improving procedures and communication across all levels of community health facilities; and helping local committees to carry out nutrition education campaigns for mothers and children. The Aga Khan Foundation Canada is working with the Aga Khan Development Network (Mali), Aga Khan Foundation (Mozambique), Aga Khan Foundation (Pakistan) and Aga Khan Health Services (Pakistan) to implement this project. The expected intermediate outcomes of this project include: improved nutrition practices of women and children; increased use of integrated maternal, newborn and child health services by women and children under five years of age; and, increased quality of maternal, newborn and child health services provided to women and children under five years of age. This project is part of Canada’s Maternal, Newborn and Child Health commitment.
