Population science of maternal and child survival


Project Summary

The goal of this 5-year programme was to reduce maternal and child mortality and morbidity in high mortality populations in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. It aimed to do this by building a global network of high quality scientists and population field sites to generate research evidence to improve policy and practice for maternal and child survival in Bangladesh, India, Malawi and Nepal. The programme brought together IGH, MIRA (Nepal), SNEHA (Mumbai, India), PACHI (Malawi), MaiMwana (Malawi), BADAS (Bangladesh) and Ekjut (Jharkhand and Orissa, India).
