OIC NETWORKS » Reproductive, Maternal, New-Born and Child Health Network (OIC RMNCH Network)

The OIC Network on Population and Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn and Child Health, is composed of interdisciplinary experts from OIC regions who engage in collective efforts to generate, share and use knowledge for the achievement of the OIC Strategic Health Programme of Action 2014-2023 (OIC SHPA) and the related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This network was mandated by a resolution of OIC 4th Islamic Conference of Health Ministers held in Jakarta in October 2013. In response, UNFPA partnered with the OIC Secretariat and SESRIC in establishing this network.

OIC Network on Population and Reproductive, Maternal, New-born and Child Health aims to achieve the following objectives:

  • Connect. Provide platform for experts to connect and to share information, case studies, and experiences.
  • Research. Review existing body of knowledge, develop research agenda, conduct research and enhance knowledge assets.
  • Share. Disseminate knowledge, facilitate dialogue and explore possibilities to address challenges.
  • Inform. Leverage existing knowledge for evidence-based policies, plans, strategies and programs to achieve the goals of the OIC SHPA and Health SDGs.
  • Collaborate. Enhance south-south and other forms of collaboration.
