It offers a snapshot of the current multistakeholder landscape for MNH advocacy and accountability, highlighting the vital contributions of civil society, parents, and communities in developing plans, policies, and budgets, monitoring progress, and spurring action.
This brief serves as a valuable resource for governments, advocates, and other stakeholders – both in Kenya and globally – to inform the design, coordination, and monitoring of policies, services, and initiatives aimed at improving health outcomes for mothers and newborns. It builds on existing efforts and lessons learned, pinpoints gaps and obstacles hindering progress, and underscores the necessity of a multi-sectoral approach that encompasses climate change, education, nutrition, women's rights, and other relevant factors.
