E4A-MamaYe is currently in its seventh year of implementation. In this time, we’ve used a combination of evidence and advocacy to drive accountability for maternal and newborn health outcomes. Read our Impact Reports to see how we did this.

The challenge is still on

Despite slow progress made on maternal and newborn health in sub-Saharan Africa, the challenge to reduce maternal and neonatal mortality is still on. E4A-MamaYe has been at the heart of this challenge for the past 7 years.

We have used effective advocacy and deployed evidence to inform decision-making on health systems. We have worked with governments to use that evidence to inform the decisions they made on budget allocations for health and to invest more in better services for reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health. We have worked with civil society to articulate the need for health services and hold their governments to account on their commitments to health.
