Narrative description of project:
Canada’s Maternal, Newborn and Child Health (MNCH) Initiative was Canada’s contribution to the G8 Muskoka Initiative and the UN Global Strategy for Women’s and Children’s Health. The Initiative was implemented by Canada’s Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD) from 2010/11 to 2014/15 and was comprised of $1.1 billion of new funds (known as Muskoka funds) and $1.75 billion of existing program funds (known as baseline funds). Newly committed Muskoka funds were primarily allocated to ten focus countries with high rates of maternal and child mortality (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Haiti, Malawi, Mali, Mozambique, Nigeria, South Sudan and Tanzania)
