Francophone West Africa Regional Hub for RMNCH Continuum Delivery of Post-Partum Family Planning, Nutrition, and Essential Newborn Package

IntraHealth and partners are working with the nine Ouagadougou Partnership countries (Benin, Burkina Faso, Cote D'Ivoire, Guinea, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Senegal, and Togo) to:1) achieve their national goals to increase modern contraceptive prevalence rates by 2020; 2) stop preventable maternal and child deaths; 3) improve maternal nutrition and feeding practices for infants and young children; and 4) ensure the health, nutrition, and well-being of mothers, newborns, and infants.

Activities

Using lessons learned from the successes and challenges the Ouagadougou Partnership countries have experienced as they built their costed implementation plans for family planning, the project is working with the nine member countries to: 1) develop country-owned, evidence-based costed action plans for ensuring deliberate, effective integration of high-impact interventions; 2) hold governments and stakeholders accountable for their commitments; 3) document and help share successes across the region; 4) leverage existing platforms in the region to align resources and improve efficiencies; and 5) advocate and mobilize resources for integrated post-pregnancy family planning, nutrition, and essential newborn care services.
