G.R.E.A.T. PROJECT PARTNERS
In order to implement an effective global programme on knowledge synthesis and exchange to reduce maternal and perinatal death and morbidity an international partnership is essential. Such a partnership will ensure that both the technical and financial resources can be generated and utilized. It is envisaged that the partnerships will evolve as new activities are prioritized and implemented. HRP/RHR will work with its donors and collaborating institutions to develop and strengthen this partnership.
