About the Alliance

In 2016, the More than Brides Alliance (MTBA) received a Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) Partnership Fund from the Dutch Government to implement a five-year programme focused on ending child marriage. The Alliance consists of four organisations: Save the Children Netherlands (lead), Oxfam Novib, the Population Council (research), and Simavi.

The programme is currently being implemented in five countries: Malawi, Niger, Mali, India, and Pakistan.
