Ending Preventable Child and Maternal Deaths

by on December 7, 2016

Ending Preventable Child and Maternal DeathsThe U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) focuses its global health efforts on delivering meaningful results in three key areas: ending preventable child and maternal deaths (EPCMD), creating an AIDS-free generation, and protecting communities from infectious diseases. Work on all of these goals contributes to EPCMD.

MEASURE Evaluation’s work on EPCMD is chiefly at the level of the national health system. Ending preventable child and maternal deaths requires improved health services, especially for the most vulnerable and marginalized within a society. MEASURE Evaluation supports health systems, by helping governments collect and analyze data that reveal gaps for maternal and child survival services and supports responsiveness to those needs. We conduct evaluations of services and programs to see what is working. We advocate sound policies on maternal and newborn care to avert preventable deaths. We help countries strengthen their health information systems so that decisions are evidence-informed.
