Supporting Advocacy Around Respectful Maternal Care

Facilitating partnerships to develop metrics around translating evidence to policy

TRAction will strategically link with partners who possess convening power and expertise in this area to foster thinking around how best to translate evidence into policy and practice and contribute to the development of short and long term metrics for measuring the success of advocacy around respectful maternal care (RMC).  Once metrics are identified, the goal is to have global normative bodies such as the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) or the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) and global advocacy groups monitor and track key indicators such as legislation and policies implemented, professional associations involved, and investments made in the area of disrespect and abuse. This will enable measurement of change and effectiveness of advocacy on a large scale.
