The Countdown to 2030 collaboration  in Côte d'Ivoire includes Institut National de Santé Publique (INSP) and the Africa Population and Health Research Center. It aims to strengthen the analysis and synthesis of health data to inform national and local reviews of progress and performance in the context of Côte d'Ivoire’s national health plans and Global Financing Facility (GFF) investment case for reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health and nutrition (RMNCAH+N). 



Cauane Blumenberg from the International Center for Equity in Health reviews data with Côte d'Ivoire team members Kpebo Denise, Séidou Kone, and Daouda Kone during the Countdown’s annual meeting in Senegal in June 2023.


In Côte d'Ivoire, the GFF Investment Case  has been implemented since the first quarter of 2020. The desired impact is the reduction of maternal, neonatal and infant and child mortality.  The indicators in the investment case’s results framework will be reviewed during the annual and mid-term reviews of the five-year plans for RMNCAH+N or the health sector in general. 

Countdown to 2030 will support this process by rigorously analyzing existing data to describe the progress and performance of the RMNCAH+N program. This support will be provided in partnership with the INSP. As the lead institution at local level, the INSP works in close collaboration with the Institut National de la Statistique (INS) and the Ministère de la Santé et de l'Hygiène publique through the Direction de l'Informatique et de l'Information, as well as the coordinating directorates of the Programme National de la Santé de la Mère et de l'Enfant, the National Nutrition Program, the National School and University Health Program - Adolescent and Youth Health and the Expanded Immunization Program.
