WELCOME Helen Scott, Director, Canadian Network for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health

4.4 million more lives were saved in 2010 than 1990

Maternal mortality declining faster since 2000

Annual under-5 child deaths (millions)

Annual maternal death (thousands) 408



9.6 287


6.6 in 2012







Risk of mortality peaks around childbirth


Newborn deaths

Maternal deaths



Child Deaths



Donnay, F. Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation


Accelerating progress

• Still not reaching the most vulnerable • Risk of maternal death 100x higher in Sub Saharan Africa • Neonatal period = 40% of child mortality • 222 million women with unmet need for voluntary, modern family planning

Economic Benefits of Investing in Maternal, Newborn and Child Health

• Annual productivity loss of $15 billion due to maternal and newborn deaths • US$20 generated in benefits for every $1 invested in RMNCH key interventions • Lowering fertility in China and India increases GDP per capita by 0.7-1.0% per year

Key Opportunities for IMPACT

Gender equity

Improved nutrition and food security – key focus on girls and women

Prevent and treat neonatal morbidity and mortality

Integrated care for pneumonia and diarrhea prevention and treatment (including vaccinations)

Improved access to emergency obstetric care and family planning

HIV: eliminate transmission to newborns and focus on maternal survival

Landscape Analysis - Summary • • • •

Canada’s contribution is significant (training) # of data elements is unrealistic (> 300) Family planning measures not integrated CHW are responsible for data collection, limited validity, reliability • Our Partners rely on MoH and DHS data (poor quality/ slow) • 11 indicators are gathered through MoH and DHS, not reliable, regional, timely

• Identify & share evidence based interventions and indicators in MNCH (science and lessons learned) • Identify best practices in the implementation of MNCH programs/ interventions (the HOW-TO). Share the evidencebased evidence about the implementation so as to inform better implementation of MNCH PROGRAMS/INTERVENTONS • Build awareness of/ facilitate and showcase examples of good collaboration • Facilitate sharing successes and challenges problem solving/sharing for MNCH issues problems/issues ( i.e.: Rapid Response Forum)

Key Activities

• Knowledge Portal • Report template/ casebook that captures the single most important thing (SMIT) or main messages • MNCH Seminar Series: Nurturing Maternal Health, AKF Canada • October 3/4 – IMPACT 2025: Working Together for Global, Maternal, Newborn and Child Health • Regular blog, Facebook post and “News & Events” eblast highlighting key reports and documents • Linking with domestic and international partners across sectors to cross-populate latest research, activities and opportunities

Linking with the research community

• Consultative process to guide government’s investments (Gates Foundation; GCC models) • Linking with NGOs for mutual sharing (empirical and scientific evidence) • Questions: – What is the value add for the research community? The NGO community? – What are the wins for the network? Reverse innovation; examples where research is driving program change

Private Sector Survey • 65% work with private sector; most have positive experience • Vast majority worked with PS for two years or less • Main types of engagement • PS provides funding for programming • PS provides funding for research • PS provides in kind materials (drugs, equipment) • Key challenge - high level of effort to generate a low level of funds • Concerns with drug quality (expiration date etc.)

Building a network • Stay focused; set clear, measurable goals • Keep it small (suggest 5 or 6 key members) • The first mile – Invest heavily, build trust • Journey – Complimentary leadership, discipline, flexible management • The last mile – don’t stop with the end in sight
