The Investment Case is a description of the changes that a country wants to see with regard to reproductive, maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health (RMNCAH) and a prioritized set of investments required achieve these results. It is not a comprehensive description of all of the activities underway on RMNCAH in the country. Instead, it presents a compelling case for how a limited number of priorities will put the country on the path to improve the health of women, children, and adolescents over the long term and thereby contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.

This note aims to provide guidance to countries developing an RMNCAH Investment Case.
