A decade of change for newborn survival, policy and programmes (2000-2010): A multi-country evaluation of progress towards scale

Health Policy and Planning Special supplement focuses on newborn survival, policy and programmes

A special supplement in Health Policy and Planning with a focus on newborn survival, policy and programmes was released on 13 June 2012 entitled: “A decade of change for newborn survival, policy and programmes (2000-2010): A multi-country evaluation of progress towards scale.”

The supplement was produced by Save the Children’s Saving Newborn Lives program in collaboration with over 150 contributors, mainly in-country partners, and presents multi-country analyses - the first of its kind for newborn survival - assessing progress over the last decade and what is needed to “bend the curve” for newborn health.

Five detailed country case studies demonstrate that changing the trajectory for newborn survival is possible even in challenging settings, when focus is placed on reaching the poorest families with the most effective interventions. The HPP series includes comprehensive analyses of how Bangladesh, Nepal and Malawi are leaders in reducing newborn deaths; how Uganda has made strides in policy change for newborns; and how in Pakistan national partnerships and champions have kept newborn health on the agenda despite challenges including earthquakes and floods.
