Channels of Hope Igniting a Movement to Transform Communities

July 2012
Channels of Hope (CoH) is the way World Vision mobilises community leaders—especially faith leaders-- to respond to core issues affecting their communities—such as HIV and AIDS, maternal and child health, gender equity and gender-based violence, and child protection. Channels of Hope is more than just training or education. It is life transformation. Training is designed to move the heart, inform the mind and motivate a sustained and effective response to significant issues. Faith leaders trained by CoH become active participants in their communities and are committed to identify and support the most vulnerable in their communities. They mobilise their own congregations and seek to strengthen existing community structures. If community support structures do not exist, these leaders often mobilise and launch community coalitions, also known as Community Care Coalitions or Community Child-focused Coalitions (CCCs), which are groups of community volunteers committed to identify and support the most vulnerable children and adults in their communities.

Integrating Maternal, Newborn and Child Health Interventions in Global Fund-Supported Programmes

July 2012
This paper offers a guide to Global Fund-programme implementers to optimally utilise existing opportunities in Global Fund-supported country programmes to maximise MNCH outcomes. It examines each stage in the lifecycle and provides, as an annex, a menu of interventions within programmes for the three diseases to address ways in which these diseases affect MNCH outcomes, along with MNCH interventions that can be added on to disease-specific interventions of Global Fund-supported programmes. It also presents an array of linkages and actions from national health systems to community levels that, together, can effectively deliver the range of MNCH interventions within disease programmes, with particular attention to organisational “preparedness” of health systems, to enable integrated service delivery.

Guide To Maternal, Newborn Child Health In Emergencies

June 2012
In emergencies, our commitment continues as we strive to save the lives of young children and mothers by focusing emergency response resources where they are critically needed. The 7-11 approaches are implemented where feasible, and in a phased manner. Some services that need to be met in an emergency cannot be provided by WV, as they are outside our remit, expertise and mandate. In such situations, it is our role to advocate for other agencies to complement the WV response and fill the gap. Review and share The Guide today!
