Enfants du Monde

2015

Enfants du Monde commits to support governments and local organizations to empower women, men, families and communities in Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, El Salvador and Haiti to improve maternal and neonatal health (MNH) and to increase access to quality MNH services. This commitment is in support of the Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health (2016-2030). We will advocate to and support Ministries of Health to integrate/strengthen a health promotion component within their MNH strategies and support the local health sector to strengthen community participation within health services, providing education to improve self-care and care-seeking behaviour, strengthening linkages between communities and health services, and improving the quality of care and interaction between health care providers and their clients. We will support Ministries of Health directly or through local NGOs to implement health promotion as a component of national MNH strategies, supporting them to operationalize the World Health Organization’s framework for Working with Individuals, Families and Communities (IFC) to improve MNH.
