The Role of Donors in Catalyzing Scale-up of Multiple Micronutrient Supplements

  • PREVIEW
  • READ ARTICLE
  • OPEN PDF

ISSN

Given the high potential of multiple micronutrient supplements (MMS) to improve maternal and child health, the Eleanor Crook Foundation (ECF) has pledged US$1 million towards advocacy and implementation research activities to effectively implement and scale up MMS programs among pregnant women. This pledge was announced through the Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies Accelerator as part of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s 2019 Goalkeepers event.Three critical factors will determine the success of scaling MMS: a reliable supply of MMS, successful sustainable delivery platforms and demand generation among pregnant women in low- and middle-income country (LMIC) settings. Underpinning all of these factors is policy change at the global and national level, and prioritization of MMS by policymakers.ECF intends to strategically invest in three main areas to support MMS scaling: (1) research to improve the implementation of MMS delivery at scale in key East African countries with significant governmental interest; (2) research focused on generating demand for MMS through creative solutions; and (3) country-level advocacy to ensure prioritization of MMS delivery in national guidelines as the antenatal standard of care.
