This policy brief is based on a review of literature and interviews with community health, quality-of-care, self-care and MNCH experts.

It explores the possibilities and advantages of a paradigm shift in MNCH that would make self-care a central operating premise. It is also meant to serve as a call to action for all those in a position to ensure that the women and children have the support to realize most basic of desires: to care for themselves.
