Successful Country-Led Scale-Up of RMNCAH Interventions

Webcast available

Webcast Recap

The unveiling of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015 signaled a new era in global health. This era is characterized by country leadership in scaling up high impact health interventions to meet national goals. The goal of a country-led scale-up is to achieve widespread and sustainable impact, requiring both high effective coverage of the population in need and institutionalization of key systems supports to sustain these expanded services. When both are achieved, interventions not already part of routine practice, such as chlorhexidine for umbilical cord care, postpartum family planning, and case management of child illness at the community level can contribute to country efforts to meet SDG targets.

Join the Wilson Center and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID)'s flagship Maternal and Child Survival Program on May 16 for a discussion on how countries may effectively scale up high impact health interventions to meet their national health goals.
