Given the broad nature of Maternal, Newborn and Child Health (MNCH) services, many PRRINN-MNCH case studies overlap with other areas of our programme.

Key cross-cutting issues are tracked through the monitoring and evaluation system and are important advocacy challenges. For example, given that only around 10% of pregnant women are currently assisted in delivery by a Skilled Birth Attendant
(SBA), this is a challenge that draws on work from all of the PRRINN-MNCH outputs which are detailed below.

Service delivery

MNCH services can be improved by reviving maternal and child health services, eg integrated management of childhood illnesses and emergency obstetric care, and building appropriate support systems such as drug management and transport.
