Merlin does this by responding to emergency needs as well as continuing to build on lasting working relationships with communities and local partners; supporting the strengthening of the Kenyan health system; approaching health problems with innovative interventions; developing answers to key practical questions through operational research; and using the lessons learned at local levels to feed into national-level programming and planning.

Merlin has been incorporating Maternal and Neonatal Child Health (MNCH) and sexual and reproductive health services into its primary health care programmes for the Kenya and Somalia programs.

This integration of Sexual and Reproductive Health Services component into existing primary health care projects, in conjunction with the respective Ministries of Health, has seen success in a number of Merlin operating countries in central and east Africa.
