Publish Date: June 2019
Author: MCSP

MCSP partnered with the Democratic Republic of Congo’s Ministry of Public Health (MOH) from 2015 to early 2019 to accelerate reductions in maternal and child mortality. Strengthening the Ministry’s institutional capacity to strategically scale up cost-effective, high-impact, evidence-based interventions was among MCSP’s primary objectives at the national level. To do this, MCSP DRC worked with multiple MOH divisions, programs and national technical working groups (TWG) to update key policies, strategies and tools, build and better coordinate partnerships at provincial, zonal and local levels, and jointly track progress made toward key national health goals addressing the remaining gaps.
