AbstractThe Making Pregnancy Safer (MPS) and Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (IMCI) initiatives were developed by WHO to provide governments and partner agencies with guidance and technical support to ensure optimal outcome for mother and child health. The Republic of Moldova is the pilot country for MPS in the European Region, where MPS was launched in January 2002; the early implementation phase was from February 2002 to February 2004. IMCI has been implemented in Moldova since 1998 and is now in the expansion phase. Both initiatives are now at a stage where the family and community component can be introduced effectively. A national workshop on Improving family and community practices addressing both MPS and IMCI was organized in Chisinau on 1-3 September 2004 as a joint effort of the Ministry of Health, WHO, UNICEF, UNFPA and SIDA. During the workshop, a situation analysis was made, essential key family practices identified and ranked according to priority for implementation, and the next steps for implementing this component were developed
