Post a reply: Examples of Sustainability of the Peer Care group model (especially mother care groups)

Use of en-net is subject to the Terms and Conditions.

Hello! I am seeking examples of the adoption of the peer care group model (example mother to mother care groups or father care groups) by Ministries of Health as part of their health care systems. 

Typically, the peer care group model is promoted by NGOs but I am interested in finding good examples of the successful handover of care groups in the global south from NGOs to the Ministry of Health where sustainability was achieved and where scaling up of the approach was possible. 

What country examples are out there? What NGOs were able to successfully hand over their care groups? How did those NGOs plan for sustainability in the early stages of their programs? How did the NGOs convince the Ministries of health of the value of the peer care group model?

How did the ministries of health take on the care group model and was there evidence of scaling up the model into new areas or with different participants?

Thanks!
