Women and girls make their communities thrive when they have access to good quality health services. The E4A-MamaYe project has been working to improve maternal and newborn survival in sub-Saharan Africa since 2012. We have learned that building local partnerships that connect health advocates with the media, government and health professionals gives them the power to hold decision makers to account for improving women's and children's health.

OUR STORY

Too many mothers and children are still dying because of preventable causes. E4A-MamaYe catalyses change by bringing together groups (including government, civil society and health practitioners) to use existing information and resources to:

  1. Identify the reasons why women and babies are dying.  
  2. Agree on how available resources can be used most effectively to address these reasons.  
  3. Advocate for the changes needed.

As a result, government and health practitioners are better able to respond appropriately to the issues causing unnecessary deaths and injuries. This means women and children have better access to improved quality health services, more women having safe births.
