    The Programme

    MamaYe- Evidence for Action (E4A) is a programme managed by Options Consultancy Services and funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation until 2017 to improve maternal and newborn survival through a combined focus on evidence, advocacy and accountability across three sub- Saharan African countries: Ethiopia, Malawi and Nigeria alongside regional level efforts. MamaYe - In each country and at a regional level, E4A has launched a locally driven programme under an umbrella E4A regional advocacy campaign known as MamaYe! The campaign has a clear focus on survival and positive stories rather than a resigned social acceptance of death in pregnancy and childbirth which is common throughout Africa. Under this investment, MamaYe-E4A will be able to scale up existing and effective models of change to improve maternal and newborn survival.

    E4A brings together experts from academic institutions, internationally recognised advocacy and accountability coalitions and civil society organizations. It works through local institutions in each of the three selected countries which host a small E4A Country Team. Please visit the website www.mamaye.org.ng for further information about the programme.
