ABOUT AMERICARES:

About Community Partnerships for Respectful Care (CPRC):
The
U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) under the New
Partnerships Initiative (NPI) has awarded to the Americares Foundation
Inc.
NPI is shifting the focus of USAID’s traditional partners to
mentoring, capacity-building, and technical oversight, by using umbrella
mechanisms and sub-awards strategically to enable new and underutilized
local partners to lead development in their own communities and advance
the Journey to Self-Reliance. USAID seeks to expand its network of
partnerships with local organizations because they can mobilize quickly
and take advantage of long-standing grassroots relationships to bring
needed interventions directly to people at risk.

The Americares
Community Partnerships for Respectful Care (CPRC) project is a
five-year, $25 million effort under NPI to reduce mortality and
morbidity among mothers and their children through improved
community-based health care. Americares will work with Christian
Connections for International Health (CCIH) and its local affiliates in
the United Republic of Tanzania and the Republic of Liberia to leverage
the expertise and reach of local and locally established organizations,
by building their institutional capacity. This new partnership will work
closely with Tanzanian and Liberian communities and faith-based
networks to improve access to, and demand for, high-quality,
community-based health care for mothers, newborns, and children;
voluntary family planning; nutrition; and respectful maternity care.
