Minister tasks stakeholders on implementation of RMNCAEH+N operational plan

By Hassan Zaggi

The Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire, has charged stakeholders in the health sector to support and ensure the implementation of the Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child, Adolescent, Elderly Health plus Nutrition (RMNCAEH+N) Multi-Stakeholder Partnership Coordination Platform (MSPCP).
He gave the charge at the dissemination of the Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child, Adolescent, Elderly Health plus Nutrition (RMNCAEH+N) Multi-Stakeholder Partnership Coordination Platform (MSPCP) operational plan in Abuja, Tuesday.  
He, however, applauded partners including the World Health Organisation (WHO), the Africa Health Budget Network (AHBN) and others for “incredibly supportive in this process.”
While stressing on the need for the full implementation of the operational plan for maximum result, the Minister: “As we disseminate this plan today, I want to resound the words of Thomas A. Edison, that a vision without execution is hallucination.
“The efforts put into the plan seem wasted if not implemented. I therefore call for a unified drive, so that we can jointly implement this shared vision.”
Ehanire disclosed that the RMNCAEH+N platform was launched in October 2020, with the aim of addressing coordination issues in the delivery of high impact interventions affecting mothers, children, adolescents, and the elderly.
The RMNCAEH+N operational plan, he said, will guide implementation of the coordination at the national level and serve as a template for adaptation and adoption at the subnational levels.
He reiterated that the plan clearly communicates the vision for the platform, enumerates the structure of the partnership and depicts the operational modalities.
The Minister enumerated the mandate of the platform to include: “Leadership, Coordination and Partnership, advocacy, resource mobilization and communication, quality technical delivery and accountability, data and knowledge management.
“These make up the four subcommittees led by a Core Group comprised of expertise from the traditional institutions and public health experts.”
While explaining the relevance of the operational plan, the Minister said: “This is a particularly important tool for the multi-stakeholder platform to work with.
“The development of the plan was a very inclusive process; the leadership of the core group, together with the secretariat, engaged with the leadership of each subcommittee through which the RMNCAEH+N platform was engaged in the broad-based consultative process that culminated in this operational plan we have today.”
