Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child, Adolescent Health and Nutrition (RMNCAH+N) Activities, and Key Achievements

Dr Fatima Mahmood Jibirilla [2]

Abstract: This article presents a comprehensive overview of the Partnership for Advocacy on Reproductive Maternal Newborn, child, and Adolescent Health and Nutrition RMNCAH N project in Nigeria. Spanning 36 months and implemented across 36 states and the F.C.T., the project aimed to enhance the capacity of the Aisha Buhari Foundation. This endeavor focused on amplifying RMNCAHN advocacy to policymakers and influential groups, thereby contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals SDGs related to women's and children's health and nutrition. Significant accomplishments include strengthening the Foundation's institutional capacity, developing advocacy toolkits for governors' wives, establishing the Future Assured Governors Wives Coalition, and sensitizing stakeholders on RMNCAHN issues. The project facilitated the integration of HIV services, established state emergency response teams for maternal and child health, and influenced legislative changes. These outcomes signify a major stride in advocating for women and girls' empowerment and in improving health and nutrition outcomes in Nigeria.
