PMNCH: Core Package of Interventions for MNCH
Evidence on the efficacy of single components of interventions is readily available today. However, while interventions have been combined into packages across the ‘continuum of care’, there is insufficient evidence on the efficacy of these packages. Developing consensus on a core package, derived from the variety of packages available for maternal, newborn and child health, is critical to efforts to reduce child mortality and improve maternal health and requires input from implementation research.
PMNCH with partners, the World Health Organization and the Aga Khan University have spent several years consulting and developing the core package to define and guide the actions that need to be by national governments and local stakeholders, as well as international partners.
