MDGs 4 & 5: Supporting the Reduction of Maternal and Under-Five Mortality - FACT SHEET

Beginning in Fiscal Year 2014, PHCPI focused its technical assistance on helping the MOH meet its Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) 4 & 5 of reducing child mortality and improving maternal health in target project areas. The project developed a package of low-cost, high-impact interventions for improving maternal, neonatal, and child health (MNCH). Using the project’s capacity building strategy, PHCPI, in partnership with the MOH, has updated a number of clinical guidelines related to MNCH. These guidelines are being introduced to primary health care service providers through the cadre of trainer-of-trainers (TOT) developed by PHCPI in each province. The project’s MNCH initiative is further strengthened by the local health committees (LHCs) working within the catchment areas of each of the project’s target clinics. These LHCs are working in partnership with clinics to increase demand for and use of PHC services, particularly among vulnerable populations, including internally displaced persons (IDPs).
