Saving Lives at Birth Program Evaluation

The Saving Lives at Birth (SL@B) Program evaluation examines the activities, outcomes, and early impacts of the program, a multi-donor activity of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF), Grand Challenges Canada (GCC), the Government of Norway (GoN), and the U.K. Department for International Development (DFID). The SL@B program goal is to fund innovative tools and approaches to help mothers and newborns during their most vulnerable hours. SL@B seeks groundbreaking prevention and treatment approaches for pregnant women and newborns in poor, hard-to-reach communities around delivery time when the majority of maternal and newborn deaths occur. It targets a population that has been the most difficult to reach.
