Global: Save the Children a core partner on $100 million USAID Moving Integrated, Quality Maternal, Newborn, Child Health and Family Planning and Reproductive Health Services to Scale (MOMENTUM) 2A
Save the Children is pleased to announce that we are a core partner on MOMENTUM 2A, a recently awarded 5-year, $100 million program funded by the US Agency for International Development (USAID) that will advance the survival and the health of women, mothers, newborns, and children worldwide.
MOMENTUM 2A is part of a suite of awards designed to help countries scale up and sustain evidence-based, high-quality maternal, reproductive, newborn and child health care, and voluntary family planning, while also supporting them to advance on their journeys to self-reliance. The MOMENTUM awards will help government partners “overcome unique health challenges and progress towards accountable, affordable, accessible, reliable, and self-reliant health care,” USAID said in its award announcement.
Jhpiego will lead MOMENTUM 2A with a highly qualified team of partners. As a core partner, Save the Children will provide global technical leadership and capacity development assistance in child health, newborn health, in-country immunization roll-out, adolescent health, nutrition, WASH, and community health systems. Our efforts will contribute to advancing the scale-up of evidence-based approaches and interventions, and to strengthening the capacity, sustainability, and resilience of local partner institutions. Additional partners include the Johns Hopkins University International Vaccine Access Center, The Manoff group, Quicksand, Matchboxology, BAO Systems, Avenir Health, McKinsey & Company, Pact, Institute for Healthcare Improvement, Christian Connections for International Health, and UboraQuality Institute.
MOMENTUM 2A builds on Save the Children’s long history of leading global progress for children and decades of experience working to end preventable child and maternal deaths globally. This includes partnerships with Jhpiego on the successful USAID-funded global flagship Maternal and Child Survival Program (2014-2019) and the Maternal and Child Health Integrated Program (2008-2014).
