E4A-Mama Ye Kenya will be happy to support the MOH and other Civil Society Organisations in realising this core component of the budget making process.

Following many months of activity from MamaYe’s Super Activists the Chikangawa Health Centre in Mzimba district has received a donation of MK 1 million from Kawandama Hills Company that will be used to acquire an ambulance in order to improve maternal and newborn health.
The Bauchi State Accountability for Maternal and Newborn Health with support from MamaYe, produced scorecards on maternal and newborn health and health budget for year 2016, to assess the performance of the government of Bauchi State in maternal and newborn health care delivery.
A 2014 report by UNFPA ranked Bungoma as the County with the 8th highest burden or maternal deaths in Kenya. Many of these deaths were and still are, preventable.
That’s a significant target, within just one of the aspirational Global Goals that were adopted at the UN General Assembly in September 2015. It is also a target that is integral to our work at E4A-MamaYe as we advocate for African leaders to ensure that no mother or baby is left behind.
Following the success of Health Budget Transparency and Accountability in Mzimba, Nkhata Bay and Rumphi, E4A-MamaYe has been asked to support a similar effort in Ntcheu district.
MamaYe Malawi has been supporting Rumphi district in participating in the budget transparency and accountability process through a series of assessments.
