MOMENTUM Integrated Health Resilience

MOMENTUM improves equitable access to quality maternal, newborn, and child health; nutrition; voluntary family planning; and reproductive health care in countries affected by conflict, disasters, population displacement, and other crises. The project strengthens the resiliency of health systems by tailoring program activities to partner countries’ unique needs and contexts. Together with our partners, we are strengthening the capacity of local organizations and governments to respond to public health challenges, now and in the future, which affect women, children, and families globally.
