AlignMNH is a global initiative funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in collaboration with the United States Agency for International Development. The initiative was founded in 2020 to accelerate progress in improving maternal and newborn health outcomes and prevent stillbirths around the globe. AlignMNH is supported by a Secretariat, managed by Jhpiego, an international NGO focused on transformative health care solutions that save lives. AlignMNH works in partnership with global and country-based organizations, national-level technical working groups, and other MNH-focused initiatives to more rapidly share science, evidence and programmatic experience across the maternal and newborn health communities.
