MCSP helped to reduce maternal and neonatal mortality in Madagascar — a country committed meeting health targets by 2019 as part of the Campaign to Accelerate the Reduction of Maternal Mortality in Africa. We built on work begun under USAID’s predecessor flagship Maternal and Child Health Integrated Program, ultimately targeting 15 priority USAID regions (including approximately 60 districts).
With a focus on evidence-based interventions along the continuum of care — from pregnancy to the postpartum period — we worked at all levels of care to improve the capacity of health providers. To strengthen linkages between the community and health services, MCSP collaborated with bilaterals implementing activities at community level. We also coordinated closely with the Ministry of Health to ensure that policies were updated and aligned with key, globally accepted standards.
