MamaYe is a campaign for maternal and newborn survival in Ghana, Malawi, Nigeria, Sierra Leone and Tanzania. Funded by the UK Department for International Development, MamaYe aims to mobilise the African public to take action to help more mothers and babies survive.
We also have a programme in Ethiopia under the banner of Evidence for Action programme.
What we do
MamaYe uses a strategic combination of evidence, advocacy and accountability in order improve quality of care during pregnancy and childbirth and save the lives of mothers and newborns.
We also seek to use advocacy and accountability mechanisms at country and pan-African levels to galvanise the change needed to improve outcomes for mothers and newborns. We collate key evidence documents relating to maternal and newborn health in Africa and globally to make it available to those who can use it in their decision-making. We collect stories of change, of everyday people taking important action for mothers and babies, to inspire others to do the same. We publish commitments that African governments and others make to their citizens so that they can be held to account.
We have MamaYe campaigns in five countries:
