Making It Happen (MiH) is currently the largest programme delivered by CMNH.
At £18 million, it is also the largest programme dedicated to Maternal and Newborn Health funded by the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID).
The aim of MiH is to reduce maternal and newborn mortality and morbidity by increasing the availability and quality of Skilled Birth Attendance (SBA) and Emergency Obstetric Care and Newborn Care (EOC&NC).
MiH has three main components:
To deliver this programme we work in partnership with national governments, Ministries of Health, LSTM offices overseas and delivery partners in country.
The Making it Happen programme currently operates in 11 countries across sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, and runs from 2012-2015.
Building the capacity of over 17,000 healthcare workers to provide emergency maternal and Newborn care, including the training of a cadre of 1,025 national Facilitators or ‘Master Trainers’ in participating countries, the benefits of the programme will be sustained beyond the immediate funding period and original facilities.
Over the last year the Centre forged ahead with its mission of reducing maternal and newborn mortality and morbidity by supporting 169 healthcare facilities to increase the availability and quality of Skilled Birth Attendance and Emergency Obstetric Care and Newborn Care.
If you are a midwife, gynaecologist, obstetrician or anaesthetist, find out how you can volunteer to deliver our training in the UK and countries across sub-Saharan Africa and Asia.
