In 2010, USAID, the UK’s Department of International Development (DFID), the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (formerly AusAID), and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation launched the Alliance for Reproductive, Maternal and Newborn Health, a unique partnership to accelerate progress in achieving MDGs 4 and 5 which focus on improving reproductive, maternal and child health outcomes. The partnership seeks to promote cost-effective use of resources, leverage resources to fill funding gaps, reduce duplication, and encourage the sharing of best practices among partners. Alliance partners work together at headquarters' level and in ten, high-need countries in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia.

To the date, the Alliance partnership continues to achieve impact at both the global and country levels, focusing on ten high-need countries: Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Kenya, India, Indonesia, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Tanzania and Uganda. The Alliance efforts have increasingly focused on supporting key global developments—including FP2020, A Promise Renewed, Every Woman Every Child, and the development of the Every Newborn Action Plan.
