About MCSP

The Maternal & Child Survival Program was a multi-partner, flagship program in support of USAID’s priority goal of preventing child and maternal deaths. Our work was evidence-based and results oriented. We focussed on increasing coverage and utilization of high-quality reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health interventions at the household, community and health facility levels.
