Become a CEPPs Partner or Supporter

Why should you join?

In the Every Newborn Action Plan coordinated by the WHO and UNICEF, it is reported that for the first time, the world has the knowledge and resources to end preventable deaths of mothers and newborns within a generation. Governments around the world have signed up to the Action Plan but to make this a reality, rely on bottom-up support from professionals and organizations in health, social and early childhood care in every city, region and country.

CEPPs proposes a collaborative platform in each country, for professionals and organizations in health, social and early childhood care to engage and form partnerships with governments at all levels. CEPPs has the transformative potential to break inter-generational cycles of adversity and disadvantage in the world, thereby helping to accelerate the implementation of the UN 2030 Agenda, (in particular Sustainable Development Goals 3-5 which address health, education and the condition of women and girls).

An expanding network of dedicated professionals

We invite you to join with other like-minded professionals, dedicated to improving the lives of mothers and young children in the world. Your expertise and experience will help us spread the word, and by expanding the CEPPs Network, promote the sharing of knowledge and best practice in health, social and early childhood care. Contact us today

CEPPs is a voluntary organisation and there are no membership fees.

The 7 CEPPs Principles are based on existing examples of multi-sector and multi-stakeholder networks that deliver a continuum-of-care to mother and child during pregnancy, childbirth and early childhood. The principles apply equally in developed and developing countries.

CEPPs also provides a channel for professionals and organizations to speak with one voice and be heard by policy makers and at the highest level, through our consultative status at the UN.
