Since 2014, the Innovating for Maternal and Child Health in Africa (IMCHA) initiative has made important strides toward improving the lives of women and children in 11 countries in sub-Saharan Africa. The initiative is a partnership between Global Affairs Canada, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, and Canada’s International Development Research Centre. It funded two Health Policy and Research Organizations and 19 research teams. To document what was done and capture the stories, results, and impacts, IMCHA is launching a legacy video series.  

Go to the full YouTube playlist to watch videos about each of the 19 research teams and the two Health Policy and Research Organizations that collaborated to generate evidence and influence policy and practices to improve maternal and child health. There are also 12 videos that explore important cross cutting themes and an impacts video highlighting some of the initiative’s successes in making a difference for women, children, and the entire population.

Enjoy!
