|About | Background | Our Approach|
Evidence for Action (E4A) is a programme which aims to improve maternal and newborn survival in six sub-Saharan countries.
Running until 2016, we use better evidence and improved advocacy and accountability to save lives in Ethiopia, Ghana, Malawi, Sierra Leone, Nigeria and Tanzania.
E4A acts as a catalyst for action, using evidence strategically to generate political commitment, strengthen accountability and improve planning and decision making at sub-national and national levels.E4A also works to strengthen international and regional accountability.
The E4A Consortium brings together experts from academic institutions, internationally recognised advocacy and accountability coalitions and civil society organisations. We work through local institutions in each of the six countries which host a small E4A country team.The programme comprises world leaders in the generation and use of evidence on maternal mortality, and in advocacy efforts:
The Consortium builds on existing strong networks across sub-Saharan Africa and creates new partnerships to support implementation, ensure that efforts are country-led, sustainable and value for money, and reflect national and local needs and priorities.
