  • Content, including key messages, Q&As, tool-kits, social media assets and more to align the Partnership behind a common platform to influence Canadian public’s engagement and behaviours in relation to investment in women and children’s health globally;
  • Execution guides that will enable CanWaCH partners, regardless of internal capacity, to deliver on their public engagement mandates; and,
  • Media outreach conducted as part of the CanWaCH Public Engagement Initiative.
