Bridging the gap between knowledge and action for health is key to reaching Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) 4 & 5, and to strengthening health system so that women and children around the world have the care they need to live healthy, productive lives. Currently, much of the knowledge is scattered over diverse sources, is of variable quality, is not equitably accessible, and is insufficiently 'translated' for policy and practice.
The Partnership for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health (PMNCH) brings together over 300 partner organizations from: governments; multilateral organizations; non-governmental organizations; health care professionals; donors; and the academic, research, and training communities. PMNCH provides a systemic mechanism, or gateway, to partners' RMNCH knowledge resources and expert networks, and builds on the commitment of partner organizations to share and translate knowledge to promote policies and practice that in turn promote maternal, newborn, and child health. This portal -- Essential RMNCH Knowledge -- is a gateway to knowledge resources from more than 400 PMNCH partner organizations working on reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health (RMNCH). This first phase provides an integrated, customised search function to these resources. It is supported by PMNCH.

The PMNCH Resource section on the PMNCH website now focuses primarily on resources produced by PMNCH. Before launching the RMNCH Knowledge Portal, the PMNCH Resource section also highlighted key RMNCH resources, documents and journals from members—which is now done by the Portal.
The archive of the RMNCH resources highlighted on the PMNCH website between 2006-2010 can still be found PMNCH website section: RMNCH Resource Archive 2006-2010.
