On 13 January 2023 the Ministry of Health, Eritrea, launched the Strategic Plan for the Implementation of Reproductive Maternal, Neonatal Child and Adolescent Health – Nutrition and Health Aging (RMNCAH – NUT&HAA) 2022-2026. The launch ceremony took place in the presence of the Honourable Minister of Health, Mrs. Amina Nurhussien at the National Confederation of Eritrean Workers. The Ministry of Health led the development of the strategic plan and the UN Agencies: WHO, UNICEF, UNFPA, and UNAIDS jointly supported the process both technically and financially.
The RMNCAH&HA Strategic Plan 2022–2026 aims to guide the implementation of high-impact evidence-based interventions to improve maternal, newborn, child, adolescent, and older people outcomes towards the attainment of the health-related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 3 (Good health and well-being) and SDG 5 (Gender equality). Ensuring universal access to comprehensive, high-impact, quality, cost-effective, and culturally sensitive reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health and healthier ageing services to all Eritreans along the continuum of care in an equitable and efficient manner is the main mission of this document.
The Ministry of Health called for accelerated action and increased investments in line with the costed strategic plan to meet the SDG targets by 2030. This will aid accelerated progress towards ending all preventable deaths of women, newborns, children and realization of the health and wellbeing of adolescents and elders in Eritrea.
