Improving Maternal and Infant Health: Adapting the MAMI Care Pathway in South Sudan

The Management of At-Risk Mothers and Infants (MAMI) Care Pathway (CP) is an intervention to improve the health of mothers and their infants. The current iteration of the Care Pathway, Version 3.0, was updated in 2021 and has been adapted to a number of contexts. MOMENTUM Integrated Health Resilience is working with the Government of South Sudan and other implementers to adapt and use the Care Pathway and to document lessons learned so that other countries can establish a process of their own for adapting this intervention, in particular to fragile contexts. In this webinar, we describe the Care Pathway, the process of adapting it in South Sudan, and the operations research we will conduct to better understand how the Care Pathway might be adapted in many different settings.

Strengthening Health Resilience to Improve Voluntary Family Planning in Fragile Settings

More than half of all maternal and child deaths occur in countries affected by conflict, disasters, weak governance and institutions, population displacements, and other acute and chronic shocks and stresses. In these settings, increased illness and death result from disruptions to basic health services and systems. From self-care and respectful care to supply chain management, traditional development approaches need adaptations and refinements in fragile settings to strengthen the health resilience of individuals, households, communities, and the broader health system to minimize the impact of shocks and stresses. The webinar presenters cover these issues; webinar participants submitted numerous questions and comments for discussion during the final portion of the webinar.
