The Centre for Maternal and Newborn Health works in partnership with an increasingly wide range of stakeholders. We view the extension and further development of these partnerships as pivotal to the delivery of our strategic objectives. We work with and for:
- Our primary stakeholders, women and children, for whom we seek to improve the availability and quality of health care such that this meets their identified health needs in a comprehensive and respectful manner and is of the highest quality
- Our immediate colleagues, healthcare providers, to build capacity, support and facilitate a functioning and enabling health system
- Governments and other policy makers: rapidly and widely sharing the results of our research, to inform policy and practice, facilitating the implementation of evidence-based healthcare interventions and programmes.
- International research partners: exploring and developing, wherever possible, improved ‘in-country’ partner opportunities as the primary means of delivering our programs, both as a mechanism for effective and sustainable delivery, and, to build local capacity and capability.
- Our donors: continuing to develop long-term strategic relationships as a ‘trusted partner’, delivering high quality work on time and on budget. We will seek to pro-actively discuss the results of our work with donors, to assist the targeting of funding and interventions, to maximize positive outcomes; positioning our work within the context of the global Sustainable Development Goals for healthcare.
