This project builds on and benefits from IDRC’s previous investment in the Innovating for Maternal and Child Health in Africa project in Senegal, Burkina Faso, Tanzania, Uganda and Mozambique. It will promote and produce maternal, newborn, sexual and reproductive health policy improvement and development using an approach that is nationally led and considerate of the need to strengthen local research and policymaking systems and institutions. It will also be positively synergistic with other externally driven initiatives and committed to prioritizing equity in terms of both processes and outcomes.

The project will result in a variety of updated and improved versions of existing policies or new policies.  It will also include a prospective evaluation that will enable real-time modification and improvement of planned activities and ensure that the model is properly studied, documented and able to generate country-specific case studies and more general lessons.
