PMNCH What we do
Strategic Objective (SO) 1: Broker knowledge and innovation for action
This Strategic Objective will result in an increase in access to, and use of, knowledge and innovations to enhance policy, service delivery and financing mechanisms. The aim is to address key constraints to achieving universal access to comprehensive, high-quality RMNCH care and services in high-burden countries.
Build consensus and strategic alignment related to RMNCH knowledge and innovations
Products are developed to meet information needs on such topics as essential interventions for RMNCH, costing and investments, taking the form of consensus statements, knowledge summaries and syntheses, investment cases and costing tools.
Facilitate the translation of knowledge and adoption of innovations in policy and practice
PMNCH will promote understanding of the knowledge needs of different constituencies and capacities to utilize knowledge and innovations. PMNCH will play a brokering role with partner organizations and regional knowledge networks to provide relevant RMNCH knowledge support for country policy-making and programme management and practice, and sharing knowledge to promote “south-south” learning.
Provide an overview of RMNCH knowledge and innovations and gaps based on analyses of global progress towards MDGs 4 and 5
This overview is facilitated by the initiative, Countdown to 2015 Reports, using strategic mapping exercises and the RMNCH Portal which provides access to the resources of hundreds of PMNCH Partner organizations.
