CDC global maternal and child health strategy 2013-2016
  • Description:
    This CDC Global Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Strategy provides a comprehensive framework for global MCH efforts at CDC. It promotes an integrated approach to the implementation of interventions that support MOH programs in countries and advance achievement of global MCH goals. It emphasizes strength- ening public health related components of the health system that are important to achieving MCH goals. The strategy aims to ensure that CDC’s technical and programmatic expertise is leveraged for maximum impact to reduce maternal and child morbidity and mortality. It focuses on women’s health from preconception through postpartum, and children’s health from the perinatal period through the fourth year.

    The strategy builds upon existing MCH activities implemented by Centers/Institutes/Offices and by CDC’s country offices in collaboration with Ministries of Health and partners. CDC has a breadth and depth of expertise in MCH from both domestic and global MCH work that can contribute to the final “big push” to reach the Millennium Development Goals launched during the 2012 United Nationals General Assembly meeting.

    CDC’s Global MCH Strategy has two primary goals consistent with United States government and global MCH targets: the reduction of morbidity and mortality among children under five years (under-5) and the reduction of maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality. To support achievement of these goals and ensure sustainability, a third goal is to strengthen health systems necessary for MCH. The fourth goal, strengthened partnerships, supports achievement of the first three goals.
