Flinch worked closely with the ICPDR to develop a strategy for communicating key messages and lessons to decision-makers, stakeholders and partners within the Danube river basin and throughout the world.


Flinch supported the formative research needed to support efforts by the World Health Organization (WHO) to increase rates of skin-to-skin contact between newborns and mothers across the Asia Pacific region. This work has the potential to save more than 50,000 unnecessary deaths every year across the region.
