Dear friends,

In 2014, USAID simultaneously launched the first Acting on the Call Report and its flagship Maternal and Child Survival Program (MCSP). Five years have passed, and in that time, MCSP has contributed to USAID’s considerable impact on the lives of women and their families in more than 32 countries.
Our work has yielded impressive immediate and long-lasting results, with countries better equipped to prevent the leading causes of maternal and child mortality. We’ve supported the development (or revision) and implementation of more than 122 national policies, guidelines or strategies in 17 countries. They are ensuring the inclusion of key, high-impact reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health (RMNCH) services.

As a result, countries are proving more resilient and better able to:

In June of 2019, at the launch of USAID’s fifth annual Acting on the Call Report, MCSP gathered with implementing partners and members of the U.S. Congress to celebrate our achievements to date and highlight the impact of our work at the country level.

As MCSP draws to a close at the end of this year, we are proud to share our legacy around themes that have emerged from our work across the continuum of RMNCH and adolescent care and nutrition programming. Join us over the next five months as we take a deeper dive into how MCSP has supported countries along their journeys to self-reliance.

At MCSP, we know the survival of a mother and her child is the foundation of a thriving family, community and country. Watch the remarkable results of 12 partner organizations working in 32 countries over 5 years on the same ambitious effort: preventing the deaths of mothers and children in countries with the highest burden.

After five years, MCSP is enormously proud to have measurably improved health care services in communities with a population totaling over 200 million people. For us, creating impact also means building countries' capacity to effectively manage their own health care. Through close partnership with host country governments and other key stakeholders, we are ensuring our gains are institutionalized and sustained.
