Project Overview

USAID’s MaMoni Maternal and Newborn Care Strengthening Project (MaMoni MNCSP) advances learning and effective scale up of Maternal and Newborn Care (MNC) interventions to ensure access for all to quality care and services to lower mortality, targeting the poor and most marginalized in Bangladesh.

Overview

Lowering the maternal and newborn mortality rate is a vision Bangladesh is striving to achieve. USAID’s MaMoni Maternal and Newborn Care Strengthening Project (MaMoni MNCSP) through Save the Children and consortium partners is actively working to reach that goal. As measures towards that goal, the project is working to advance learning, and expand and ensure effective scale up of Maternal and Newborn Care (MNC) interventions for improved quality of care in Bangladesh. It aims to ensure access for all to quality MNC services to lower mortality, especially for those who are poor and marginalized, and therefore more susceptible to it. With this objective, MaMoni is expanding the evidence base and testing new MNC innovations in selected learning sites, and furthermore, facilitating health systems improvements and policy changes for sustained impact at national scale.

Over five years (April 2018-April 2023), the project target population in the 10 focus districts includes approximately 21.5 million people and 400,000 births per year, across 10 districts in 71 upazilas, 727 unions and 810 health facilities.

The MaMoni MNCSP project aims to achieve 4 major results in MNC improvement
Improved responsiveness of district health systems to deliver patient-centered MNC services
Improved quality of MNC services and governance of quality of care
Sustain improvement in access and demand for MNC services and household practices
Improved national capacity to deliver quality MNC services at scale
