Key Strategies from Channels of Hope MOMENT Grant

World Vision’s Mobilizing for Maternal and Neonatal Health through Birth Spacing and Advocacy (MOMENT) project is a three-year (2013-2016) Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation-funded family planning and advocacy project. MOMENT aims to improve maternal, neonatal, and child health (MNCH) by increasing political advocacy for global health and encouraging the U.S. and Canadian governments to maintain robust global health funding commitments.

World Vision also uses its community-led advocacy model, Citizen Voice and Action, and its Channels of Hope model focused on engaging faith leaders 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.
