The Countdown to 2030 collaboration in Côte d'Ivoire includes Institut National de Santé Publique 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).
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 RMNCAH+N program’s progress and performance. This support will be done through a partnership with the Institut National de Santé Publique (INSP). As the lead institution at the local level, the INSP will work closely with the Institut National de la Statistique (INS) and the Ministry of Health and Public Hygiene through the Directorate of Health Informatics and Information, the Directorate of the National School and University Health Program, Adolescent and Youth Health, the Directorate of the National Nutrition Program, and the Directorate of the National Program for Maternal and Child Health.
The expected outputs will include:
- A scoping review of key RMNCH indicators in the investment case to identify key thematic issues.
- In-depth data analyses including geospatial, equity and coverage analyses.
- Two analytical workshops to strengthen country analytical capacities.
- A mid-term review report of the RMNCH plan, highlighting progress and performance towards national and subnational targets.
- Other communication products, including policy briefs, statistical profiles, web portals, and factsheets.
- Two peer-reviewed journal articles and one country poster.
- Recommendations to improve the monitoring of the RMNCAH+N program.
