The All Mothers and Children Count (AMCC) Project is a four-year initiative financed by the Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF) and Global Affairs Canada, which commenced in March 2016. The project is implemented in Burundi by Village Health Works (VHW), in Mozambique by EHALE (Association of Health), in Rwanda by Partners In Health (PIH) and in Tanzania by the Anglican Church of Tanzania Diocese of Masasi. The project aims to reduce illness and death among women of reproductive age (WRA), newborns and children under five (U5) in 450 villages by working with local partners and health authorities in Burundi, Mozambique, Rwanda and Tanzania.

The project is designed to strengthen existing health infrastructure, improve local and institutional health knowledge, and enhance access to healthcare and proper nutrition for current and expecting mothers in rural areas. The AMCC Project was designed by PWRDF and partner organizations in consultation with beneficiaries and community leaders. It aligns with the strategic plan and health targets identified by the respective governments (Burundi, Mozambique, Rwanda and Tanzania), and was approved by the local health authorities in the project catchment areas. The project builds and expands on the best practices and lessons learned from PWRDF’s implementation of past and current MNCH projects.
