It has been a month since our global call for proposals of what works in collaborating across sectors closed and what a great response we had. We received more than three hundred proposals – a strong testament to the interest and commitment to working across sectors to improve the health and wellbeing of women, children and adolescents around the world. We want to thank every one of you who participated in this call and shared your story.

Eligible proposals were reviewed by external expert reviewers and the highest scoring proposals were ranked and shortlisted. To identify the final twelve case studies, a set of rules were applied to the shortlist ensuring, representation across regions and the six Every Woman Every Child themes.

PMNCH is in the process of informing the twelve successful applicants and once confirmed; they will be unveiled at a special event on 11 April in New Delhi to kick-start the countdown to the 2018 Partners’ Forum. The learnings from the twelve case studies will be the foundation for the content at the Partners’ Forum in December where they will be launched and included in a special issue of the British Medical Journal as well as shared through other video, social media and digital formats.

We will share more information soon, so please bookmark this page and check in regularly for updates.
