Working together to succeed



National MNCH Program is not alone in the noble cause of improving maternal and child health. Development partners are very earnestly supporting the program at all tiers of its implementation. All partners are doing concrete efforts to ensure that we reach out to all the mothers and newborns in Pakistan. Some of our development partners are listed below:





Pakistan Initiative For Mothers & Newborns (PAIMAN)

PAIMAN has undertaken a holistic approach for improving maternal and newborn health in the 10 districts which ranges from interventions within the community, within the public and private sector, and with district health systems. The community BCC and mobilization component has been working to improve families’ awareness about maternal and newborn health issues. This communication and mobilization strategy has been closely linked with a second component which seeks to improve access to and the quality of public and private sector health care delivery at the district level. This has included the training of public and private sector providers in Essential and Emergency Obstetric and Newborn Care, with a special emphasis on the training of a new cadre of community-based midwives as a long-term solution to increasing rates of skilled birth attendance.

PAIMAN has also refurbished and re-equipped selected public sector facilities to ensure 24/7 emergency care, and has oriented Traditional Birth Attendants in clean delivery techniques and referral mechanisms. As a cross cutting intervention, PAIMAN has also worked on building the capacity of district health mangers to plan for and evaluate interventions the district level.
