In his capacity of member of Global Health and Tropical Medicine (GHTM), Sambo accepted the invitation to be part of the Partnership for Maternal, Newborn & Child Health (PMNCH), “the world’s largest alliance for women’s, children’s and adolescents’ health and well-being”.
To ensure that all women, infants and children remain healthy and thrive, the PMNCH was funded in 2005, hosted by the World Health Organization, based in Geneva, Switzerland.
Currently, PMNCH counts with 1,250 partner organizations from 192 countries that work together through 10 constituency groups: partner governments, donors and foundations, NGOs, adolescent and youth groups, private sector organizations, health professional associations, academic and research institutions, global financing mechanisms, inter-governmental organizations, and UN agencies.
According to Luís Sambo, this membership means “the support of GHTM to generate and gather knowledge and evidence for advocacy, policy development and health systems investments to accommodate health needs of women, children and youth”.
