The Maternal, Newborn, Child Health and Nutrition (MNCHN) Strategy is in line with the DOH Administrative Order 2008-0029 that seeks to rapidly reduce maternal and newborn morbidity and mortality. Foremost to this is the provision of Basic and Comprehensive Emergency Obstetric and Newborn Care (BEmONC and CEmONC) capability of health facilities to meet the UN MDGs 4 and 5. Newborn care has been incorporated in the provision of these service capabilities. The Administrative Order 2009-0025 formalized the adoption of policies and guidelines on essential newborn care.
