The Survive & Thrive Global Development Alliance, established in 2012 to improve maternal and newborn health outcomes, has released their final report highlighting key achievements, including the development of an evidence-based training methodology for maternal and newborn care. Global Health Media Project contributed to this effort with the development of teaching videos that complement the core training programs (Helping Babies Survive and Helping Mothers Survive) developed by partners within the Alliance. Our videos are organized in four series covering small baby care, newborn care, breastfeeding, and childbirth.
Survive & Thrive has played an important role in improving newborn and maternal health outcomes worldwide, supporting countries in strengthening national programs and training over 500,000 health workers in low-resource settings. The report summarizes these achievements and includes lessons learned for future maternal, newborn, and child health initiatives.
