Healthy Mothers Healthy Babies 2021 Annual Report

View this article as a pdf

At the start of 2021, the Healthy Mothers Healthy Babies (HMHB) Consortium launched its first ever annual report. The 2021 Annual Report1 highlights the key achievements of the HMHB Consortium, elevating its mission to improve maternal nutrition and health through multiple micronutrient supplementation (MMS) throughout the 2021 Year of Action on Nutrition.

The inclusion of MMS in the World Health Organization’s Essential Medicines List (EML) in 2021 was a significant step forward in accelerating the availability of MMS during pregnancy for millions of women in low- and middle-income countries. The HMHB Consortium developed an Advocacy Brief and Frequently Asked Questions document2 to enable countries to include MMS in their national EMLs.

Furthermore, the HMHB Consortium offers easy access to over 100 key resources such as scientific articles, implementation tools and short expert videos on MMS and maternal nutrition through its ‘Knowledge Hub’3 and provides an interactive MMS world map4 showcasing who does what in MMS-related activities worldwide.

Building on the momentum and groundwork of 2021, the HMHB Consortium looks forward to increasing its focus and support at the national level. More specifically, the HMHB Consortium plans to collaborate with ENN to explore the use of MMS in emergency and humanitarian settings and to understand the lessons learned and barriers to scaling MMS.
