Chad has one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the world, with 856 deaths for every 100,000 live births.[1] One in ten children die before reaching their fifth birthday, and 35 percent suffer from stunted growth.[2]

While these alarming statistics demonstrate significant improvement compared to prior decades, there remains a dire need for long-term sustainable investment in sexual, reproductive, maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health and nutrition (SRMNCAH+N).

As part of the GFF’s efforts to catalyze the mobilization of domestic resources for SRMNCAH+N, the Chadian Government, civil society and other stakeholders must collaborate to develop and implement an investment case.

To support meaningful engagement of civil society and youth-led organizations in the process, Cellule de Liaison et d’Information des Associations Féminines (CELIAF), with the support of PAI, led the creation of a CSO-GFF coalition for coordinating work on the GFF investment case at the national, regional and local levels in Chad.
