Implementation methodologies
By strengthening local health and development systems, improving services, and changing behaviors, PATH's work will increase access to maternal-child health and survival programs for a population of approximately 4 million people and support both countries in their efforts to meet their commitments under the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Specifically, the Window of Opportunity Project focuses on improving the health and development of children less than two years old in four districts in South Africa and one district in Mozambique. Using a participatory approach aimed at building community ownership and capacity, the Window of Opportunity project will be working in partnership with local health and social services departments, as well as with nongovernmental and community-based organizations, to tailor its activities to local needs and capacities for improving child health and development.
