Country case studies on “Making multisectoral collaboration work.”


Introduction

PMNCH along with The BMJ has released 12 country case studies as part of a new series which offer real world examples of what works, as well as the challenges involved in collaborating across sectors for health and sustainable development. Conducted for over a year by dedicated country teams and involving over 500 participants from 12 countries, the country case studies will showcase how diverse sectors (health, education, nutrition, social affairs, etc.) are intentionally shaping new ways of collaborating and learning, using “business not as usual” strategies to achieve shared goals.

The case studies each relate to one or more of the key thematic priorities of Every Woman Every Child movement (adolescent health and well-being; early childhood development; empowerment of women, girls and communities; humanitarian and fragile settings; quality, equity and dignity; and sexual and reproductive health and rights); show diversity in relation to country income level, region and sectors and stakeholders engaged.

By shedding light on what works and why, and on how to address the challenges of collaborating across sectors, the series aims to inspire dialogue and collective learning, political interest, and further research and action for multisectoral collaboration.

The 12 country case studies were selected from more than 300 responses to PMNCH’s global call for proposals. The series will be officially launched at the 2018 Partners’ Forum on 12 December.
