Abstract:

The Saving Mothers, Giving Life partnership (SMGL) is a global partnership between governments, donors, and the private sector to accelerate reduction in maternal and neonatal mortality in sub-Saharan African countries.As part of the SMGL program, the USAID-funded Health Policy Project (HPP) has worked with Zambia’s Ministry of Community Development, Mother and Child Health (MCDMCH) and its Ministry of Health (MOH) to develop their capacity to use the OneHealth Tool (OHT) to model reproductive, maternal, neonatal, and child health (RMNCH) program scale-up and resource needs.In order to make further progress toward reducing maternal, neonatal, and child mortality, MCDMCH requested that HPP conduct a training on the Lives Saved Tool (LiST) (a component of OHT) with programmatic staff from the ministry’s maternal health, child health, and nutrition units. LiST is a computer-based modeling tool that uses input data such as demographic and service coverage levels to estimate the number of deaths that can be averted as a result of expanding effective maternal and child health interventions.
