Merck for Mothers Global Giving Program

Through this two-year program, PADF is bringing together stakeholders from the public and private sectors to collaboratively develop an electronic policy handbook, or toolkit, that can serve as a foundation to inform national and regional strategies and policies to reduce maternal mortality throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.

With the support from Merck, the program is developing this toolkit by sharing quantitative and qualitative data, identifying gaps and challenges in maternal health data collection, and highlighting best practices to tackle maternal mortality in the region. The toolkit will aim to include a comprehensive review of existing data sources at the country and regional/local level with supplemental sources collected through key-informant interviews with local stakeholders.

This consolidated and accurate source of data will facilitate maternal health policy planning for policymakers in Argentina, Colombia, and Mexico, with the ability to be replicated in other parts of the Western Hemisphere.
