> What we're doing > Collaboration





One of the key principles guiding the PRRINN-MNCH programme is collaboration. It is important to collaborate and align activities with states and local governments. To this end, PRRINN-MNCH has supported states and Local Government Areas (LGAs) to carry out strategic and operational planning. We then align these plans with programme plans to harmonise activities and to promote efficiency. In the states and at national level, PRRINN-MNCH promotes donor harmonisation. We have established state level committees to speed this up.

However, collaboration goes beyond development partners and government bodies. The PRRINN-MNCH programme engages regularly with traditional and religious leaders to ensure that their voices are heard and taken into account in developing and implementing plans. Similarly, we involve community structures in a wide variety of programme activities so that issues regarding barriers to accessing services are understood and addressed.
