Making it Happen: Current Activities

Following this success of the first phase of the MiH programme, all 5 participating countries have requested scale-up of the MiH programme in their country.

An additional 6 countries (South Africa, Malawi, Pakistan, Ghana, Nigeria, and Tanzania) declared their interest in and commitment to MiH and were selected to develop the MiH programme within their own contexts of wider health system development programmes.

As a result, between 2012 and 2015 the MiH Programme will be delivered in 11 countries:

Eight in Sub Saharan Africa (Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Republic of South Africa, Sierra Leone, Ghana and Nigeria) and three countries in Asia (India, Bangladesh and Pakistan)

The current phase of Making it happen has 5 outputs:

Output 1: Increased health care provider capacity to provide Emergency Obstetric and Newborn Care (EmONC) 

Output 2:  Increased availability of EmONC for mothers and babies

Output 3:  Strengthened accountability for results with increased transparency

Output 4: Strengthened Capacity to sustain improvements in MNH service delivery

Output 5: Evidence generated by programme disseminated in order to inform national, regional and global agenda.
