A statement issued by the Liaison Director of the Foundation, Mr. Niran Adedokun, said that membership of “The Partnership”, as it is called, requires a “commitment to Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health, in accordance with The Partnership’s guiding principles and conceptual framework, and that the WellBeing Foundation has satisfied all the criteria, conditions and responsibilities required to become a member of The Partnership.” (The Partnership has a broad membership that includes country partners, international agencies, donors, non-governmental organizations, professional associations and research and academic institutions.)

The statement from the foundation also said that on her part, the President and Founder of the Foundation, the First Lady of Kwara State, Mrs Toyin Saraki, has expressed great satisfaction on the recognition of the foundation’s work in the area of maternal health and child survival and the acceptance of WBF as a member of the partnership. She also restated her determination to remain at the forefront of maternal and child health issues in Nigeria, while giving her full support to the Federal Government’s Integrated Maternal, Newborn and Child Health strategy.

The Partnership for Maternal Newborn and Child Health (PMNCH) was launched in September 2005 when the world’s three leading maternal, newborn and child health alliances joined forces under the new name of The Partnership for Maternal, Newborn & Child Health. These organizations were: the Partnership for Safe Motherhood and Newborn Health, hosted by the World Health Organization in Geneva; the Healthy Newborn Partnership, based at Save the Children USA; and the Child Survival Partnership, hosted by UNICEF in New York.
