HOW WE WORK
Alive & Thrive’s diverse systems strengthening approaches address MIYCN needs within both the public and private sectors to enable partnerships and foster sustainability.
Our Social and Behavior Change framework and proven policy advocacy strategies serve as the foundation by which A&T guides the capacity building of influential individuals to champion MIYCN practices and the enhanced delivery of services for the 1,000 days population, their family support circles, and the frontline workers who serve them.
Ongoing strategic use of data brings stakeholders together, lends power to advocacy, and motivates positive decision-making.
Future work is transformed through the power of implementation learning and continual testing and documentation of how to effectively deliver and scale state-of-the-art MIYCN programs.
Alive & Thrive engages in dynamic alliances with donors, governments, and MIYCN partners to share responsibility, leverage knowledge, and speak in one voice across regional and global platforms.
We emphasize capacity building at various levels, from national to local, and among different institutions (multi-lateral, NGO, others) to deliver and sustain quality MIYCN services at high coverage, and to improve the policy and regulatory environment. By working directly with governments and local partner organizations that have extensive community reach, we are able to embed MIYCN interventions into these existing platforms.
Identification of opportunities for cross-fertilization of learning and best practices are formed through ongoing dialogue across country and regional programs, as well as through our Stakeholder and Technical Advisory Group.
