Recognizing that maternal, child health and nutrition are key elements contributing to the achievement of the MDGs, the United Nations in Mozambique  “Delivering as ONE” has developed a Joint Programme designed to Support the Availability, Accessibility and Provision of High Quality SRH, Neonatal & Child Health Services and Nutrition. The development of this JP aims to ensure that the efforts of the UN Agencies are aligned with the Government priorities for achieving the targets for MDG 4 & 5. 

The activities included in this Joint Programme were already underway before the programme started, and consequently no new activities/programmes were created just for this JP. The added value of this JP is that it gives more emphasis to those activities that the Government considers to be priorities for the improvement of maternal, neonatal and child health.  The JP also aims to complement the different activities/programmes in such a way  that efforts are all part of one holistic programme and do not constitute parallel programmes that run alongside each other. By taking a more holistic approach, this JP is focusing on the effectiveness of the programmes and making sure that resources are used in the most efficient way possible. A key assumption of the JP is that interventions in one specific area are not enough to make a difference, and that successful interventions are those that look at multiple causes and address them in a comprehensive and integrated manner. 

This JP takes on board the different areas of expertise that the different UN agencies have, as well as areas and programmes that the different UN agencies are working on, and looks for relevant synergies and common ground. 

To ensure appropriate support for the national efforts, and aligning with government priorities, the JP focuses on strengthening institutional capacity and increasing access to and use of integrated Maternal, Neonatal and Child Health (MNCH) and Nutrition services by: 

  • Supporting the development and/or adoption of the keys strategic documents related to SRH, NCH and nutrition;
  • Advocating for and supporting the design and implementation of a MNCH package, thereby ensuring that every mother and child has access to an integrated package of maternal and child survival interventions, especially good quality sexual and reproductive health services; and  
  • Strengthening capacity at national and sub-national levels to improve service delivery, focusing on providing support for sustainable integrated models that can provide evidence for national scale-up.

The main expected outcomes and outputs of the Joint Programme are as follows:

Outcome 1: Sexual and reproductive health, neonatal and child health and nutrition issues are adequately addressed through health policies, plans and strategies at all levels, and the associated outputs are:

1.1- Development and/or formal approval of the key strategic documents to support access, quality and use of maternal, neonatal and child health and nutrition are supported; and

1.2 - Capacity for planning, monitoring and evaluation of maternal and child health programmes at national and sub-national level are strengthened.

Outcome 2: Access to and use of cost effective mother, newborn and child and nutrition interventions increased through integrated health services, and the associated  outputs are:

2.1- Government and community capacity improved for the implementation of integrated MNCH key interventions, including nutrition in RED (Reaching Every District) plus districts; and

2.2- Government and community capacity improved to strengthen key nutrition interventions, reducing vulnerability and improving nutritional status of the mothers and children in selected food insecure districts.
