The Initiative is open to the participation of partners from across the Region. The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) facilitates the participation of other institutions, which are members of the Regional Working Group for the Reduction of Maternal Mortality (GTR). The GTR is the regional mechanism that brings together UN agencies, bilateral and multilateral agencies, professional networks and civil society organizations, which call for the reduction of maternal mortality.

Nationally, it is expected that governments and civil society will be involved in the development of local activities and will support the activities already planned. More information on these activities is available on
