With funding from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and in collaboration with its partner Save the Children, Jhpiego is implementing a four-and-a-half-year, $13.5 million project that aims to decrease maternal and neonatal mortality in Sylhet and Habiganj Districts. The project, entitled “MAMONI,” is an Associate Award under USAID’s global Maternal and Child Health Integrated Program, or MCHIP. MAMONI is designed to increase the use of healthy maternal and neonatal behaviors, including family planning, during the antenatal, delivery, postnatal and intrapartum periods. Under this project, Jhpiego is leading efforts to: 1) increase acceptance of family planning methods, and 2) advance understanding of family planning as a preventive health intervention for mothers and newborns. MAMONI I is being implemented in partnership with Save the Children, MACRO International, Inc. and Broad Branch Associates.
For nearly 40 years, Jhpiego, (pronounced "ja-pie-go"), has empowered front-line health workers by designing and implementing simple, low-cost, hands-on solutions that strengthen the delivery of health care services, following the household-to-hospital continuum of care. We partner with community- to national-level organizations to build sustainable, local capacity through advocacy, policy and guidelines development, and quality and performance improvement approaches.
