Partnership on Maternal Newborn and Child Health (PMNCH) - March 2007

Nigerian NGO Workshop

Nigerian NGO Workshop

Nigeria is one of six high burden countries that benefit from The Partnership Grant. The Federal Ministry of Health had the task of coordinating the actions of donor agencies, implementing partners and civil societies in accelerating the reduction in maternal, newborn and child mortality. To accomplish this feat, the Partnership set up a country PMNCH secretariat and Country Support Working Group.

The Federal Ministry of Health held a National Conference on Maternal Newborn and Child Health, in Abuja in late March 2007. The Conference provided an opportunity to begin the long needed collaboration between the different MNCH stakeholders in the country. The national Nigeria Partnership for Maternal Newborn and Child Health was launched to meet the following objectives:

  • To bring the issue of maternal, newborn and child health to the forefront of the country's development agenda
  • To review the draft integrated maternal newborn and child health (IMNCH) strategy and fit it Nigerian purpose and needs
  • To build a consensus on the IMNCH strategy and its implementation through NGOs, civil societies, professional health associations and relevant stakeholders.

Mrs Toyin Saraki, members of professional associations, training institutions, non-governmental organizations, representatives of the bilateral and international partners and the Global PMNCH secretariat were in attendance at the conference which included group work during which clusters representing the country's six geographical zones reviewed the National MNCH strategy based on the needs of their specified areas. Following this national conference, the WBF became a global partner to PMNCH, and a member of the Core Technical Committee which was formed to actualize the recommendations of the Nigerian PMNCH

Maternal Newborn and Child Health Stakeholders Meeting

Maternal Newborn and Child Health Stakeholders Meeting
- Abuja June 2009

The WBF under the chairmanship of Toyin Saraki maintains a constant and visible presence at every forum where the involvement of NGOs and civil societies are sought in order that Nigeria meets the millennium development goals. These workshops demonstrate the broad base of affiliation that the WBF has with Senate, House of Representatives, the FMOH and NPHCDA as well as the donor agencies and implementing partners. Seeking a larger platform for the partnership between policy-makers, legislators and those on the receiving end of national health policies, Toyin Saraki led non-governmental agencies to Abuja FCT in June 2009 as an invited representative of the WHO-PMNCH Nigeria Country Partner.
