About the Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies Consortium

Every day, poor nutrition robs girls and women of their full health and potential, denying them their power to grow, to learn, to work, to thrive. The Healthy Mothers Healthy Babies (HMHB) Consortium, hosted by the Micronutrient Forum, accelerates collective action to break this vicious cycle and give a healthy start to mothers and their babies through evidence-based interventions.

Launched on 10th March 2021 during a global webinar, the HMHB Consortium brings together a range of expertise to generate awareness, provides up-to-date scientific evidence and advocacy tools for policymakers, donors, and program partners to trigger policy change; in particular, to accelerate the adoption of multiple micronutrient supplementation (MMS) during pregnancy in low and middle-income countries. To know more, visit the HMHB website.

The Healthy Mothers Healthy Babies Consortium wants to see 75 million women access multiple micronutrient supplementation (MMS) during pregnancy every year by 2030.

The HMHB Consortium is fulfilling its mission through three key actions:


The Consortium advocates for women and maternal nutrition by organizing global events such as the WHO Health Talk on Women Nutrition and creating advocacy tools such as the UNFSS and N4G Commitment-making Guides.

Brokering Knowledge

To disseminate knowledge about MMS and maternal nutrition, an online repository of information called the ‘Knowledge Hub‘ and short videos by experts called ‘Knowledge Bytes‘ have been created by the Consortium.


The Consortium regularly convenes sessions on MMS and maternal nutrition to bring stakeholders together on global, regional and local meetings such as the CONNECTED Conference.

While the Consortium has a strong focus on MMS, women matter at all stages of their life cycle. Consortium members are committed to ensuring that women are supported through good nutrition and through wider measures to improve health, food, and social protection systems.

Together, we can power women nutrition for promising futures.
