The mission of the MDG5 Meshwork is to develop innovative and effective partnerships that contribute to the achievement of Millennium Development Goal 5, to improve maternal health. We aim to make best use of each others' strenghts and work together in effective cooperation. By now, the MDG5 Meshwork connects over thirty organizations based in Afghanistan, Sierra Leone and the Netherlands.

The partners within the Meshwork collaborate on improving maternal health in five projects, all of them cutting across traditional boundaries between disciplines and sectors.
