MCSP is a mature program now. Across 52 programs in 32 countries, we know what works in settings as diverse as Egypt and Guatemala. And the results speak for themselves.
Beginning this issue, we’re proudly sharing highlights from our country programs. What have we learned under MCSP? For those who are hardest to reach – pregnant women, mothers, and their young children – we hope our work has made their lives more healthy, and their communities more self-sufficient and resilient than when we began.
Our growth has gone both ways. Delivering culturally-sensitive services and trainings in some of the world’s toughest places for health has yielded countless lessons learned. Our knowledge gained on-the-ground continues to season us as technical experts and program implementers working in the ever changing world of global health.
Join us as we take a look, month by month, at life in a few of the thousands of communities where MCSP has made an impact. Then consider a deeper dive into our work via the more than 60 new blogs, success stories, and events pieces we’ve posted just this year! Also newly available are staff presentations from three high-level fall conferences: the Global Symposium on Health Systems Research, FIGO’s World Congress, and the 5th International Conference on Family Planning.
In the coming year, MCSP’s legacy will continue to shape global dialogue, policy, guidelines and strategy as we transform the everyday practices that help countries help themselves.
Wishing you a restful, healthy holiday season – and a bright start to the New Year!
