OVERVIEW FOR PARTNERS Partnership Guidelines 2013


Maternal health is a critical need around the globe Hundreds of thousands of girls and women around the world die every year from complications in pregnancy or childbirth, creating a rippling eect that devastates children, families, and communities. 90% of these deaths are preventable. And yet the UN s Millennium Development Goal 5, which focuses on improving maternal health, remains the furthest o track. It is possible to make pregnancy and childbirth safe for all moms, but only if we speak up and make it a priority. To achieve change, we must inform and engage the public so they are energized about taking action.


Every Mother Counts is working to mobilize the public to bring an end to needless maternal deaths

•  Every Mother Counts is the only grassroots, consumer-facing campaign today that is working to end preventable deaths caused by pregnancy and childbirth around the world. •  Every Mother Counts informs, engages, and mobilizes new audiences to take action to improve the health and wellbeing of girls and women worldwide.


EMC is a dynamic organization with a mission that will resonate deeply with consumers Our issue speaks to people on a personal level.

Everyone has a mother or mother-to-be in their lives. 60% of women recently polled stated that they want to find a way to get involved with this issue. Consumers have already responded in overwhelming numbers to our message.

Maternal health is a new, growing opportunity for consumer engagement. Unlike many issues, preventing needless deaths caused by complications in pregnancy and childbirth is an age old issue that CAN be addressed. However, it is still a largely untapped opportunity for reaching consumers, and we are the leading organization in this space.

We engage our audiences in innovative ways. EMC is not your old-school development campaign. We engage consumers deeply with cutting-edge, interactive approaches such as critically-recognized videos, social media, and online forums.

We focus on action. EMC aims to provide diverse and meaningful ways for our audiences to get involved and help support women and girls around the world. We make a priority to then report back to our audiences about the impact their actions are having on the lives of others.


We inspire individual actions—over 5.2M in 2012 • 

We track our progress across two dimensions—reach and impact.

• 

Reach focuses on connecting more individuals to our issue. We generate content to explain maternal health in an accessible way, launch public awareness campaigns, and encourage storytelling through social media and our partners.

• 

Impact focuses on what the EMC community is able to accomplish. We track funds raised, events attended, grants awarded and policy changes achieved in communities.


We invest 100% of what we raise in programs that help mothers around the world Bumi Sehat, Indonesia January 2012 •  Awarded to a village-based nonprofit in Bali founded by Robin Lim, 2011 CNN Hero •  Funds went to support the building of a new clinic Midwives for Haiti, Haiti Sept. 2012 •  This program trains Haitian women to provide skilled birth assistance to women in their own communities •  Our grant will train 15 midwives Baylor Uganda, Uganda October 2012 •  Grant awarded to provide transportation vouchers so Ugandan women can reach health facilities •  EMC’s support will provide ~13,500 vouchers


And through these programs, we connect mothers here with mothers and providers abroad •  Every month, EMC shares a new story with our audience about the progress of each grant. •  Through these stories from the field, we connect the mothers who are impacted by EMC’s grants with our supporters who have helped EMC fund those grants. •  We are providing grantees with training and technology so they can continue sharing their stories with us regularly.
