MATERNAL NEWBORN AND CHILD HEALTH (MNCH) PROGRAMME Northern Nigeria has some of the highest rates of maternal, newborn and child mortality in the world.
The purpose of the programme is to improve the quality and availability of all maternal, newborn and child health services in the three states of Yobe, Katsina and Zamfara. These services include:
Antenatal and postnatal care
Care for newborn and young children
Effective Primary Health Care
The £33.8 million Maternal Newborn and Child Health programme is funded by the Government of Norway and implemented by the UK Department for International Development. Following an outstanding Programme Review and demonstration of value for money, the programme has been extended for an additional year and will run for a total of five years until the end of 2013.
The MNCH and the Partnership for Reviving Routine Immunization in Northern Nigeria (PRRINN) programmes are closely linked and a number of their outputs and activities are inter-dependent. The two programmes have a “single face” for in-country stakeholders.
The health systems-strengthening objectives of the Maternal Newborn and Child Health programme enables PRRINN goals and objectives to be achieved more effectively and will help to ensure that achievements can be sustained in the medium- to long-term
