Our Work

MCSP supported programming in maternal, newborn and child health, immunization, family planning and reproductive health, nutrition, health systems strengthening, water/sanitation/hygiene, malaria, prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV, and pediatric HIV care and treatment. It was the principal follow-on to the USAID-funded Maternal and Child Health Integrated Program, with an expanded scope to reflect a changing global health landscape as well as shifts in USAID’s own priorities.

The Program placed greater emphasis on key cross-cutting issues such as innovation, e/mHealth, equity, quality, gender, public-private partnerships, and involvement of civil society, community approaches and behavior change interventions. While maintaining focus on the technical high impact interventions, MCSP worked toward sustainable scale up to include strengthening the health systems that deliver these interventions.
