2012-15 PMNCH Workplans and Budgets


2015 PMNCH Workplan and Budget

The 2015 PMNCH Workplan and Budget was approved by the PMNCH Board on 31 March, 2015, following the recommendation of the Executive Committee. The PMNCH “Strategic Framework 2012-15” is the over-arching strategic document on which the 2015 Workplan and Budget has been based.

The 2015 workplan is the final workplan in the current 2012 to 2015 Strategic Framework, and has been developed in the context of the existing Partnership’s Vision and Mission:

  • Vision: The achievement of the MDGs, with women and children enabled to realize their right to the highest attainable standard of health in the years to 2015 and beyond.
  • Mission: Support Partners to align their strategic directions and catalyse collective action to achieve universal access to comprehensive, high-quality reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health care.

It also builds on the developments that have taken place in 2014 in national, regional and global efforts to improve women’s and children’s health, as well as lessons learned from the implementation of the 2014 workplan. One such development is the inclusion of adolescent health as an integral part of the overall reproductive, maternal, newborn and child, including adolescents, health Continuum of Care. Whilst the Partnership’s Mission remains unchanged in this workplan, as was adopted by the Board at the start of this Strategic Framework period (2012 to 2015), the work of the Partnership is focused across the entire continuum, including adolescents, as guided by the Board and the Executive Committee.

The workplan is developed to meet two primary objectives in 2015. These are:

  • Objective 1: To contribute to the development and increased political support for an updated Global Strategy for Women's, Children's and Adolescents' Health, with an accompanying plan for national implementation. This includes PMNCH’s contributions to the technical content of the emerging strategy and implementation plan, advocacy and communication efforts, and management of stakeholder consultations.
  • Objective 2: To support partners to deliver on RMNCAH objectives, including those set out in the Global Strategy, through a fit-for-purpose PMNCH. This includes the development of a post-2015 PMNCH Strategic Framework and implementation plan, as well as ensuring that the 2015 priorities are delivered through effective governance and constituency management as well as partnership operations, corporate communications and resource management.

In addition to these two objectives, the Partnership continues to host the Countdown to 2015 initiative. This includes hosting the staff of the initiative’s secretariat and supporting the communications and advocacy activities.

Working towards these objectives will continue to strengthen the unique PMNCH platform, which has to date successfully enabled the Partnership to work through its constituencies and networks around the world to reach a critical mass of stakeholders required to set agendas and mobilise action.
