H4+ is a collaborative effort by six agencies within the United Nations system (UNAIDS, UNFPA, UNICEF, UN Women, WHO and the World Bank) to provide harmonized support to countries in their efforts to achieve Millennium Development Goals 4 and 5. H4+ was initially established to advance maternal and newborn health. After the 2010 launch of the Global Strategy, the focus of H4+ was expanded to include reproductive health, child health, and the task of helping countries act on their commitments under the Global Strategy to provide an integrated package of reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health (RMNCH) services.

This progress report includes an assessment of the support the H4+ partnership has provided to countries in 2013. This report was developed by WHO and UNFPA, in collaboration with UNAIDS, UNICEF, UN Women and the World Bank.
