Muskoka Initiative Consortium Results


Initiative Overview

In July 2012, CARE Canada,   Plan Canada , Save the Children Canada, and World Vision Canada established a knowledge management consortium (“Muskoka Initiative Consortium” or MIC) funded by Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada (DFATD) with two primary goals: to demonstrate the value of cross-organizational collaboration in maternal, newborn and child health (MNCH), and to analyze, interpret and communicate the collective impact of some of Canada’s investment in MNCH.  The investment related to 10 MNCH projects implemented by the NGOs listed above, in 7 countries: Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Ghana, Mali, Pakistan, Tanzania and Zimbabwe. The MIC partnered with the Centre for Global Child Health at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) and the Munk Centre for Global Affairs, University of Toronto, to develop and deliver a Knowledge Management (KM)/Translation (KT) Strategy for data stemming from the 10 projects. This work is known as the MIC-Knowledge Management Initiative (MIC-KMI). As part of this work, additional research has also been conducted with the intention of advancing evidence-based MNCH knowledge. This three year collaboration culminated in a two-day symposium in Toronto, Canada on June 24 and 25, 2015.
