3 February 2021: The Healthy Mothers Healthy Babies (HMHB) Consortium has released its first-ever Annual Report for 2021. Since its launch on 10 March 2021, HMHB has advanced a compelling and evidence-driven agenda on the transformative potential of multiple micronutrient supplementation (MMS) with clear and measurable achievements in the Year of Action on Nutrition.
The Annual Report provides a brief introduction of the Consortium, its origin, vision, and mission and highlights its achievements under three key ‘A-B-C’ actions: Advocacy, Brokering Knowledge, and Convening in the context of its priorities for 2021. It also mentions the achievements of the 11 Partners from the Healthy Mothers Healthy Goalkeepers Accelerator, from which HMHB originated. Finally, the report outlines HMHB’s vision for 2022, which focuses on supporting countries in national-level advocacy, in alignment with its commitment at the Nutrition for Growth Summit in December 2021.
This report is targeted to donors, partners, global and national stakeholders as well as potential HMHB members to inform them about how HMHB has translated its mission of accelerating the availability and accessibility of high-quality, affordable MMS for vulnerable women during pregnancy in low-and-middle-income countries into action.
