Advocacy Resources

The toolkit has been developed for advocates and public health professionals, national health officials & partners in NGOs, research, academia, program implementors, as well as local providers and distributors. It consists of five components to support national stakeholders: an adaptable slide deck, an advocacy brief, a frequently asked questions brief, an HMHB Consortium factsheet, and short, unique, five-minute films that lift up women’s voices in different global contexts.

HMHB aims to facilitate in-country dialogues that will support policy alignment and consensus. The resources are meant to guide and assist national partners in advocating for the prioritization of maternal nutrition, more significant investment in nutrition interventions including MMS, and adoption and scale-up of MMS at the national level. The toolkit summarizes evidence on pregnancy and nutrition, the scale and scope of maternal malnutrition, research on MMS, national investment case, steps for introducing and scaling MMS, and finally, a case study performed in Indonesia. It will soon be available in French, Spanish, and Arabic.
