Area(s) of interest in Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn and Child Health (RMNCH):

USAID’s flagship Maternal and Child Survival Program (MCSP) is the principal follow-on to the Maternal and Child Health Integrated Program (MCHIP), but the scope of this Program has expanded to reflect a changing global RMNCH landscape as well as shifts in USAID's own priorities. The Program places greater emphasis on key cross-cutting issues such as innovation, e/mHealth, equity, quality, gender, public-private partnerships, and involvement of civil society, community approaches and behavior change interventions including through communication. While maintaining focus on the technical high impact interventions, MCSP works toward sustainable scale up to include strengthening the health systems that deliver these interventions.
