Implementation in three of the country’s departments (North-West, Artibonite and West), the Santé djanm pou manman ak timoun project, or SMNE project, ultimately aims to help reduce maternal and infant mortality by improving the delivery and use of essential health care services, and by increasing the intake of nutritious foods and dietary supplements by mothers, pregnant women, newborns, and children under the age of five. Covering 10 health care institutions, the project involves support in the rehabilitation of infrastructures so that they meet such things as environmental standards and women’s rights, support in human resources and inputs both for emergency obstetrical and neonatal activities and management of global acute malnutrition (GAM). The project also supports 88 versatile community health workers (VCHW) in the seven communes targeted for intervention. The project also mobilizes community leaders, grassroots community organizations and traditional midwives or matrons in the targeted areas for conveying health promotion messages. The project aims to have women’s and girls’ rights factored in more and more broadly exercised and informed at both the institutional and community levels. As such, special attention is paid to the prevention of gender-based violence (GBV) and care for the victims of GBV at both the community and institutional levels. Lastly, in the interest of supporting good governance, it provides support to the Ministry of Public Health and Population’s (MPHP) local management structures by strengthening their capacity to administer the maternal and infant health program as defined by the central authorities.
