MCHIP Partners involved Lead Organization: Jhpiego, Partners: Save the Children and IIP
Scale/Coverage National Scale MCHIP will support roll out of the newborn resuscitation program (Helping Babies Breathe), support development of an accelerated midwifery program, identify promising practices in MNH, support the national MNCH Communication and Advocacy Plan, and help identify additional research on cultural barriers to accessing maternal care.
|Integrated Approaches||MCHIP will implement an integrated quality improvement approach focusing on MNH/postpartum family planning/PMTCT at the facility level. MCHIP will also expand integrated MNH and PMTCT services at selected sites.
|Collaboration||MCHIP will expand and strengthen selected MNH interventions currently being implemented by the Integrated Family Health Program (IFHP), a comprehensive program addressing gaps in provision of community- and health facility-based reproductive health including FP and MNCH. MCHIP will work with IFHP to identify and support technical areas such as provision of basic emergency and obstetric care training, and immediate care of the newborn.
With core funding, MCHIP will also support activities implemented under the Urban Health Extension Program, focusing on conducting a study to better understand barriers to facility-based delivery in urban settings, as well as develop Ethiopian leaders who will be networked to other country teams working on similar urban health issues, including those around MNCH.
