This paper presents a framework for assessing strategic partnering as a way to reach populations that have been traditionally bypassed by maternal and child health (MCH) interventions. The framework is applied to the CORE Group. Concrete examples are given of how this partnership contributes to improved outcomes for mothers and children; enhanced policy dialogue, expanded local and national capacity; and the generation of new resources. This paper concludes with the identification of relevant lessons for MCH donors and nongovernmental organizations that may enter into similar partnership arrangements.
