2015

Bayer and White Ribbon Alliance commit to the prevention of maternal, newborn and child death through the application of self-care policy advancement and self-care community level intervention programs in the areas of nutrition, hygiene, preventative care and minor treatments. This commitment will: (1) Promote improved maternal, newborn and child health through improved policies on self-care and self-care’s role in community health over a three year period; (2) Implement 3 community based self-care intervention programs in the area of nutrition, prevention and minor treatments, and hygiene over 18 months; and (3) Contribute to learning and expanded partnerships in self-care over a three year period.

Our aspiration is to focus on the efforts of this commitment to raising awareness of self-care by strengthening leadership and knowledge gaps. This initial commitment will be focused on multiple countries and at the subnational level -- 3 separate communities in separate countries - with a focus on policy development at the global level. The commitment will span from September 2015 until December 2017, and is valued at $1.5 million.
