Global Maternal Health Conference 2013

Saving Mothers Giving Life Initiative provides an opportunity for multiple program strategies. In Zambia, Ndhlovu described a mentorship program for those that have been trained in EmONC and Helping Babies Breathe. Nyambe in Zambia explained an approach to health education by targeting the local leaders to become chief change champions to increase the demand for facility based deliveries. Byakika-Tuslime described a program in Uganda, using district-wide systems-strengthening efforts for increasing access, utilization, and quality of care for pregnant women. Muhwezi's work also in Uganda used Birth Weight and Age at Death Boxes for an Intervention and Evaluation system (BABIES) on the local and district level to gather and display data in a simple way.
