Maternal and Child Health Integrated Program
The USAID Bureau for Global Health’s flagship Maternal and Child Health Integrated Program (MCHIP) worked in more than 50 developing countries to improve the health of women and their families. MCHIP supported programming in maternal, newborn and child health, immunization, family planning, nutrition, malaria and HIV/AIDS, and encouraged opportunities for integration of programs and services when feasible. MCHIP addressed the barriers to accessing and using key evidence-based interventions across the life stages—from pre-pregnancy to age 5—by linking communities, primary health facilities and hospitals. By helping countries identify and focus on those innovations that will save lives, MCHIP supported delivery of evidence-based interventions through strengthening government health systems, nongovernmental organizations and other local partners.
Under MCHIP activities, DevCon contributed to reductions in maternal and child deaths, and improved the health of women (from planning a family through pregnancy and delivery) and their children (from infancy through childhood). At the household, community and hospital levels, MCHIP activities included capacity building of community and health workers involved in every aspect of mother and child’s health.
