This special study for Save the Children’s Saving Newborn Lives (SNL) program provided an opportunity to return to two countries, Indonesia and Mali, four years after SNL ended its in-country activities. The study has three components: two case studies which investigate what has happened to the momentum for and institutionalization of newborn health in Indonesia and Mali, and a synthesis report that draws lessons from the two case studies.
The reports provide a background of each country’s status prior to the start of SNL and summarize progress made between 2000 and 2010, using SNL’s “pathway to effective coverage” as a framework. The reports compare the current status of newborn care in the two countries, factors affecting progress, and what role SNL played in contributing to progress. They conclude with key stakeholder suggestions for ensuring continued progress in newborn health, in addition to the study team’s analysis of priorities moving forward.
