At present, there are too many gaps in systems across the region, where governments have not effectively distributed resources and have under-funded MCNH
activities (especially in rural areas), and divested in the infrastructure that would ensure access to such basics as clean water and continuous electricity in health clinics.
Although majority of the participants indicated the existence of a policy on health research related to MCNH
in their organizations (68.42%), stakeholders' views defined and integrated within a policy on health research related to MNCH (74.29%) and forum or process to coordinate the setting of health research priorities related to MNCH (70.27%), however, the MNRs of the extent of uses of the research done by others and use of research related to MNCH initiated/done by their organizations for policy-making was low ranging from 3.30-3.39 on the scale of 5.
A l'heure actuelle, il existe trop de lacunes dans les systemes a travers la region, ou les gouvernements n'ont pas reparti efficacement les ressources et ont sous-finance des activites de MCNH
(en particulier dans les zones rurales), et se sont desistes de l'infrastructure qui garantirait l'acces a des ressources de base telles que l'eau potable et l'electricite non-interrompue dans les cliniques de sante.
