We increase the resilience and enhance the leadership of countries and public and private health institutions to better respond to shocks and stressors that impact the delivery of quality health care, and ultimately, maternal and child survival.
MOMENTUM enhances the ability of countries, communities, and households to achieve optimal health for women and children. We build the capacity of local health systems and providers to improve high-quality and evidence-based maternal, newborn, and child health services, voluntary family planning, and reproductive health care. By advancing local management capacity, we ensure that countries develop a resilient health system that can sustain positive health outcomes and interventions.
Our capacity-strengthening technical assistance spans the humanitarian-to-development continuum. We equip health institutions in fragile settings to better respond to shocks and stressors, such as the COVID-19 pandemic that impacts maternal and child survival. We also build the sustainability and resilience of private providers and networks to deliver quality maternal and child health care and family planning services and products, understanding that many women and adolescents seek care outside of the public sector.
Throughout, MOMENTUM fosters global leadership that advances global learning and policy dialogue on improving maternal and child health outcomes and voluntary family planning use.
We work to expand global health technical leadership by highlighting and strengthening the expertise and leadership capability of governments, institutions, and organizations in partner countries.
We accelerate progress toward improved health outcomes by offering context-driven technical and capacity development assistance to enhance and scale up evidence-informed health approaches and interventions.
Private Healthcare Sector
We partner with the private sector to leverage resources, increase efficiency in building health capacity, and improve equitable access to respectful quality care.
We focus on context-specific needs within countries, including addressing localized differences that impact the health and well-being of communities in fragile settings.
