Prioritise engagement in Countries (SO1)

The Partnership seeks to Prioritise engagement in Countries (SO 1) and has, since 2009, been explicit that it is a Partner-centric organization. The overall focus of the Partnership’s work is to achieve results and impact in the countries where the need is greatest. The Partnership will leverage its core strengths - alignment, analysis, advocacy, and accountability – to support the Every Woman Every Child (EWEC) movement and deliver the Global Strategy. National action plans will form the binding forces around which key stakeholders will coalesce through multi-stakeholder platforms.

For 2016, the Partnership has identified a mix of Global Financing Facility (GFF) and non-GFF countries. The countries are Afghanistan, Angola, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo, the Gambia, Malawi, Mozambique, Nigeria, and Sierra Leone.

The Partnership, however, continues to work in a universal way, reaching for impact in all countries and not only in the focus countries. By creating an inclusive environment and facilitating dialogue and interaction among different stakeholders from across the SRMNCAH and health-enhancing sectors at all levels, The Partnership seeks to build alignment and strengthen the agenda for action in countries, including helping them to implement the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
