The FTIRM 2016-2020 is an extension of the first FTIRM and outlines the priorities for reducing maternal and newborn mortality between 2016 and 2020 in line with the targets established for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
The Fast Track Initiative Roadmap (FTIRM) for Reducing Maternal and Newborn Mortality 2010-2015 was developed in 2009 as a means of accelerating reductions in maternal and newborn mortality and progress
toward achieving Millennium Development Goal (MDG)4 and 5.
The FTIRM 2016-2020 is a high level document that is nested between and aligned with the Health Strategic Plan 2016-2020, and sub-sectoral strategies and plans such as the Sexual and Reproductive Health Strategy,
the Emergency Obstetric and Newborn Care (EmONC) Improvement Plan and the Five-Year Action Plan for Newborn Care. It is a high level prioritization document, and its main purpose is to highlight priority interventions
for rapidly reducing maternal and newborn mortality over the next five years. The FTIRM will be used to inform development of sub-sectoral strategies and annual plans, and to inform resource mobilization and
budget allocations.
