Strategy and workplans

The PMNCH Board adopted the 2012-15 PMNCH Strategic Framework and aligns the yearly Workplans and budgets according to the following three Strategic Objectives (SO).

Strategic Objectives (SO)

SO 1 Knowledge

Increase access to and use of knowledge and innovations to enhance policy, service delivery and financing mechanisms, addressing key constraints to universal access to high-quality reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health care (RMNCH) in high-burden countries.

SO 2 Advocacy

Identify and mobilize additional resources for RMNCH through partner engagement and by maintaining visibility of women’s and children’s health issues in policy and development forums. Promote consensus on evidence-based policy development and implementation (including strategic priorities and alignment of resources).

SO 3 Accountability

Promote accountability for resources and results, leading to better information to monitor RMNCH results, as well as better and more systematic tracking of how resource commitments are actually allocated.

Operational principles

The Partnership structures its workplan activities around four operational principles, namely:

  • being partner-centric,
  • being a convenor,
  • being driven by country demand and regional priorities; and
  • promoting the Continuum of Care approach to improve women’s and children’s health.
