Hi everyone! Meg McLaughlin, THINKMD Research and Impact Lead
One of the strongest influences on a child’s chances of survival to 5 is the level of Mom’s education (children born to mothers with 12 years of education are more than 30% less likely to die before age 5, IHME 2021). Why don’t we see more maternal education/child health partnerships?
Hello everyone! NGABONZIMA Anaclet, Child Health Lead, Momentum Integrated Health Resilience
The "project coordination" theme seems very process heavy with potentially high transaction costs. Can't we simplify "multisectoral" action a bit to ensure (as at least a first step) that other sectors have systematic ways to prioritize investments that maximize impacts on child health (or, really, even maternal and child health more broadly)? Examples could be school programs including sanitation or nutrition components, or road projects capturing improved careseeking and emergency medical transport impacts as part of criteria for determining priorities. To Leith's point, there could also be more explicit capture of child health impacts of other sectoral investments, to help Ministries of Finance and other resource-deciding institutions decide that these are indeed investments in future human capital.
@John; yes coordination and the associated transaction cost is one hindrance to multisectoral programming as often conceived. Part of the question is what constitutes multisectoral programming? Do you see a spectrum from sectoral programs/interventions with impacts on health versus pooled activities and/or teams and/or cofounding and/or monitoring and attribution?
Thanks for sharing wonderful perspectives. Enlightening for many of us in the Civil Society trying to work with multiple stakeholders to improve ECCD . 👏
How does this effort relate to FHI 360’s big push on what they called “integrated development” funded by BMGF about 8 years ago. They generated a lot of materials https://www.fhi360.org/resource/integrated-development-tools
I agree with @John. Education + now ICT
Thanks for sharing all this important informations .. Looking Forward to june 8th!
Sorry I joined quite late but looking forward to the next session. Will try to catch up on the recording. Gathering from discussion the subject relates to my experiences.
Need to prioritize the multi-sectoral partnerships that have the greatest impact on child survival using best peer-reviewed studies and models. You have to demonstrate that 1 + 1 = 3. This is not going to be true for most areas - just a few.
thank you all looking forward to the next meeting
