Reducing preventable maternal, newborn, and child deaths at scale by improving care effectiveness and efficiency

Wednesday, July 25th, 9:00-10:00 a.m. ET (Washington, D.C.)

USAID estimates that we could save the lives of more than 15,000 children and 830 women each day just by reliably delivering evidence-based care, every time, to the people who need it. Sounds simple in theory, but what does this look like in practice?

In this July 25 webinar on reducing preventable maternal, newborn, and child deaths at scale by improving care effectiveness and efficiency, Nigel Livesley, ASSIST Regional Director for South Asia, presented on ASSIST’s work in India, where ASSIST-supported facilities delivered more babies per year than many countries, and Tamar Chitashvili, ASSIST Senior Quality Improvement Advisor for MNCH, discussed ASSIST’s work in Uganda, where ASSIST has been involved in international, national, and sub-national level efforts to improve maternal, newborn, and child health. The discussion was moderated by Lynne Franco, Vice President of Technical Assistance and Evaluation at EnCompass, with commentary provided by Troy Jacobs, Senior Medical Advisor, USAID's Office of Maternal Child Health and Nutrition.
