Pathfinder International is a global leader in sexual and reproductive health. We place reproductive health care at the center of all that we do—believing that it is not only a fundamental human right, but is critical for expanding life opportunities for women, families, communities, and nations, and paving the way for transformations in environmental stewardship, decreases in population pressures, and innovations in poverty reduction. Pathfinder provides women, men, and adolescents with a range of quality health services—from contraception and maternal care to HIV prevention and AIDS care and treatment. Pathfinder strives to strengthen access to family planning, advocate for sound reproductive health policies, and, through all of our work, improve the rights and lives of the people we serve.
Program Overview (Summarize the purpose and activities of the department and/or project)
MOMENTUM—or Moving Integrated, Quality Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health Services and Family Planning and Reproductive Health Care to Scale—is a suite of innovative awards funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to holistically strengthen quality voluntary family planning (FP), reproductive health (RH), and maternal, newborn, and child health (MNCH) in partner countries around the world. As part of this suite of awards, MOMENTUM Integrated Health Resilience (MIHR) is a five-year cooperative agreement of up to $200 million from USAID that works to strengthen health resilience and continue providing high-quality, respectful, maternal, newborn, and child health (MNCH), voluntary family planning (FP), and reproductive health (RH) health care in fragile settings.. MIHR is led by IMA World Health, with Pathfinder International, African Christian Health Associations Platform (ACHAP), Cooperative for Assistance and Relief Everywhere (CARE), GOAL USA FUND, and JSI Research and Training Institute. The project seeks to support countries to overcome the impacts of fragility on the population’s health and contribute to countries’ movement along the development continuum toward reduced maternal and child mortality and increased self-reliance.
