Introduction

ActionAid Bangladesh (AAB) is committed to stand by people living in poverty and help them get rid of poverty and injustice. The Country Strategy Paper IV of AAB sheds light on the organisation in terms of understanding the reasons of poverty and exclusion and the ways of addressing it. Since partnership plays the most important role in defining the impact of AAB, it is important to clearly state, the meaning of partnership‟ for AAB and how it intends to practice what it preaches. It is also important to state how AAB intends to work or not work with organisations that foster poverty and deepen inequality. Partnership is an overarching and necessary strategy that cuts across geographies and different levels from local to international, projects and programmes. Our partnership policy has been developed to support and enhance the quality of relationships, and to ensure mutual accountability to our partners and vice versa.

Our past experiences have unfolded a need for qualitative change in the meaning of Partnership. AAB therefore considers that its partnership with communities and grassroots organisations, particularly with poor and excluded people, that will contribute to that Change. AAB believes that no single actor can ensure rights. This necessitates the need for multi-dimensional partnerships with key players such as government, civil society, people's movements, alliances, networks, forums, NGOs, donors and the media in carrying forward and strengthening policy advocacy work. Partnership Policy (PP) is essentially a language of communication among the entities that constitute partnership. The PP aims to strengthen the bond among partners. It is also a continuous process of negotiation to come to a common ground for intervention in the social world in order to change it.

MAKING MARKET WORK FOR WOMEN

In Bangladesh, nutrition and SRH care are interlinked problems: poor food intake causes malnourishment, which leads to poor health and poor SRH perpetuates the inter-generational cycle of undernourishment. Deficiencies in nutrition and SRH care result in poor labor productivity and market performance. One of the key factors leading to (women’s) intake of poor nutritional food at home, poor reproductive, maternal and sexual health stems from lack of life skills (on SRH). Thus, poor reproductive health conditions adversely affect women’s ability to participate in activities outside of the home, which in turn manifests itself as their inability to participate in and shape the market.
