Share Tweet Share

World Vision’s Mobilizing for Maternal and Neonatal Health through Birth Spacing and Advocacy project is a three-year Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation-funded family planning and advocacy project. MOMENT aims to improve maternal, neonatal, and child health by increasing WV’s engagement and political advocacy for global health and encouraging the United States and Canadian governments to maintain robust global health funding commitments. WV also uses its community-led advocacy initiative, Citizen Voice and Action, in India and Kenya to promote and increase use of available MNCH and Healthy Timing and Spacing of Pregnancies/Family Planning services to improve child survival and women’s health, prevent unintended pregnancies, and reduce child and maternal morbidity and mortality. 

  • MOMENT Objective 1: Build greater U.S. Congressional support to commit and protect resources for global MNCH, with particular focus on MDGs 4 and 5 
  • MOMENT Objective 2: Build greater Government of Canada support for sustained resources for MNCH, with particular focus on MDGs 4 and 5 
  • MOMENT Objective 3: Strengthen community awareness and civic action for improved service delivery and use of HTSP/FP services in India and Kenya
