Family Care International (FCI)

2015

Experience under the first Global Strategy (2010-2015) has shown that an active, engaged civil society is essential to demanding change and to holding governments accountable for making sure that change happens. Family Care International will build on our original commitment to support the Updated Global Strategy (2016-2030), working with partners in many countries to strengthen the capacity of national and community organizations to effectively advocate for the health and rights of women and children; to build civil society alliances that amplify the voices of families and communities; to partner with champions in and outside of government to build a culture of transparency and accountability; and to ensure that the needs of underserved populations and under-represented countries are heard and addressed. The estimated value of this commitment is $10 million dollars for the period 2016-2020.

*As of January 2016, FCI has become a Program under the Management Sciences for Health (MSH)
