Sustainable project ideas for aof maternal and child health

  1. 1. 2014 ROTARY INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION Sustainable Global Grant Projects in the area of ‘Maternal and Child Health’
  2. 2. Sustainability — The Precondition for Global Grants — Examples of Sustainable MCH projects JOIN LEADERS, EXCHANGE IDEAS, TAKE ACTION
  3. 3. Sustainability in development aid • Development aid projects often not sustainable • Beneficiaries‘ needs / involvement are by-passed • Synergies with other stakeholders are not used • Results are not measurable (ad hoc / long-term) • Projects are not “owned” by the beneficiaries ► Scaling up = proof for sustainability ► Continuous scaling up = can be included in system
  4. 4. Sustainability in Global Grants • Community needs ? • How were these needs identified? Provide data • How was local community involved in planning? • Does project align with current/ongoing local initiatives? • Describe training, outreach, or educational programs • How will you measure your impact? (Indicators, monitoring and evaluation) • Local participation • Continuity of services / maintenance / local funding
  5. 5. MCH and Sustainability • Improvement of women's health incl. family planning services = very cost-efficient, profitable investment for improvement of overall living conditions • Immediate social, ecological and health benefits • Savings education/health outlasting one generation • MCH Improvement contributes to all MDGs
  6. 6. Access to FP could save the lives of 80,000 mothers and 600,000 newborns p.a. Sustainable savings for health systems Fewer 'drop- outs'‚ lower fertility, improved education opportunities Empowerment of women Less poverty and hunger Source: UNFPA Sustainable impacts of MCH
  7. 7. Sustainable Single Interventions Provision of mosquito nets (LLIN): • Threefold effect: 1. Prevention of malaria 2. Motivation for polio vaccination 3. Promotion of antenatal care • LLIN remain effective for several years, low- maintenance • Easy documentation, measurable results / indicators
  8. 8. Sustainable Single Interventions Provision of vitamin sachets: • Reduction of infant/child morbidity + mortality • Long-term impact on risk of lifetime illness • Best linked with community awareness and provider training • Documentation in health facilities
  9. 9. Sustainable Comprehensive Approach • Core project: introduction of quality assurance in obstetrics + awareness • Satellite projects / single interventions: – Mosquito nets – Solar power + water supply – Magnesium sulfate, PMTCT – Birth kits, anti-shock garments – Fistula surgeries, micro credits – IUDs, FP provider training
  10. 10. training of health staff/audit Maternal Mortality Ratio (MMR) - 60% Contraceptive Prevalence Rate (CPR) 10% 20% equipment of obstetrical departments prenatal care and postnatal care quality of process Stakeholder satellite project: Preventing Mother-to-Child Transmission of HIV (PMTCT) Rotary/stakeholder satellite project: 24,000 mosquito nets (protection from malaria) For more information about the project visit quality of structure Quality Assurance in obstetrics Project contributes to our new Area of Focus ‘Maternal & Child Health’ and to all UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) close collaboration with governments & traditional/religious leaders Rotary/stakeholder satellite project: water/solar power supply for hospitals Stakeholder satellite project: delivery kits, magnesium sulfate, anti-shock garments attended births information about child spacing 1.500 patients repaired & rehabilitated 35% >50% awareness campaigns, community dialogues MDG access to family planning (no abortion) reduction of morbidity e.g. fistula quality of outcome Rotary satellite project: micro credits
  11. 11. Sustainable Comprehensive Approach • Measurable indicators: - Reduction of MMR, PMR - No. of conducted community dialogues - No. of attended deliveries in hospitals - Training of health personnel/community health workers • Regular documentation / evaluation during and after project implementation • Clear set of milestones and goals • Overall goal: inclusion in health system “Sustainability of the sustainability” (TRF)
