Essential MNCH Knowledge: A portal to RMNCH resources
Publisher/Organizer: The Partnership for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health
Bridging the gap between knowledge and action for health is key to reaching Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) 4 & 5, and to strengthening health system so that women and children around the world have the care they need to live healthy, productive lives. Currently, much of the knowledge is scattered over diverse sources, is of variable quality, is not equitably accessible, and is insufficiently 'translated' for policy and practice.
The Partnership for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health (PMNCH) brings together over 400 partner organizations from: governments; multilateral organizations; non-governmental organizations; health care professionals; donors; and the academic, research, and training communities.
The RMNCH Knowledge Portal is a gateway to knowledge resources from more than 400 PMNCH partner organizations working on reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health (RMNCH). Through this portal, PMNCH provides a systemic mechanism, or gateway, to partners' RMNCH knowledge resources and expert networks, and builds on the commitment of partner organizations to share and translate knowledge to promote policies and practice that in turn promote maternal, newborn, and child health.
This first phase provides an integrated, customized search function to these resources. It is supported by PMNCH.
