The Healthy Mother Healthy Babies Consortium (HMHB) is dedicated to helping mothers and their newborns thrive through proven nutrition interventions such as antenatal Multiple Micronutrient Supplements (MMS) and maternal Balanced Energy and Protein supplements (BEP). Scaling these maternal nutrition interventions can significantly improve pregnancy and birth outcomes, particularly in low-and middle-income countries (LMIC) where access to nutritious food is often limited.
In addition to fostering collaboration among various maternal nutrition stakeholders, HMHB also hosts global Technical Advisory Groups (TAG) on MMS (MMS TAG) and BEP (BEP TAG).
These interdisciplinary and diverse TAGs consist of experts in nutrition, maternal health, and public health. The TAGs interpret evidence, address knowledge gaps, and provide high-fidelity practical guidance to governments, NGOs, foundations, multilateral organizations, and the private sector.
