This assessment provides a detailed analysis of the existence and status of the Global Financing Facility (GFF) multistakeholder country platforms (MCPs) in terms of their effectiveness and functionality in providing strategic coordination of stakeholders and funding sources for reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health and nutrition (RMNCAH+N) country investment cases (ICs). Guided by the minimum standards provided in the Guidance Note: Inclusive Multi-stakeholder Country Platform in Support of Every Woman and Every Child checklist, the assessment highlights the status of GFF countries’ processes and the existence of the MCPs, the composition and representation of various MCP constituencies and how well the country-level MCP structure assumes its roles and responsibilities.

This assessment was supported by PAI, through its Civil Society GFF Resource and Engagement Hub and the GFF Civil Society Coordinating Group hosted and coordinated by The Partnership for Maternal, Newborn & Child Health.
