PMNCH mini-website - RMNCH technical support
There is potential to expand the impact of Global Fund investments to improve the health of women and children even further within the existing mandate and framework which is consistent with the UN Secretary-General’s Global Strategy for Women’s and Children’s Health, which builds on the Campaign on Accelerated Reduction of Maternal Mortality in Africa (CARMMA) and other related initiatives, and offers a triple return on investments by improving progress towards MDGs 4, 5 and 6.
PMNCH has gathered further technical resources and support for integrating RMNCH with HIV/AIDS, TB and malaria strategies (from WHO, UNICEF, PMNCH, World Vision, International HIV/AIDS Alliance, Population Action International, IPPF and other partners) in a special mini-website.
