MOMENTUM Integrated Health Resilience

More than half of all maternal and child deaths occur in countries affected by conflict, disasters, weak governance and institutions, population displacements, and other acute and chronic crises.

MOMENTUM Integrated Health Resilience (MIHR) works to accelerate reductions in maternal, newborn, and child illness and death by increasing the capacity of host country institutions and local organizations to introduce, deliver, scale up, and sustain the use of evidence-based, quality maternal, newborn, and child health services, voluntary family planning, and reproductive health care.

Project Date: 2020 - 2025
Funder: USAID

  • Develop the health resilience of individuals, families, communities, and health systems to improve health and ensure the sustainability of MNCH/FP/RH services.
  • Ensure that programs lead to improved health by incorporating the latest research and learning into activities.
