Commitment by

American India Foundation

In 2014, the America India Foundation (AIF), in partnership with TSRDS, SEARCH, THF, and local State Government of India, committed to scale their 2009 commitment 'Maternal and Newborn Survival Initiative (MANSI)' by entering new geographies with new and existing partners. Since the beginning of the project, MANSI has provided newborn care to over 6,163 neonates and has provided prenatal care and counseling to more than 7,318 pregnant mothers in Jharkhand, India. In addition MANSI has reduced the neonatal mortality rate by 32.7 % and the child and infant mortality rate by 26.5%. Through this 2014 commitment, AIF has committed to serve 100,000 neonates and 100,000 pregnant mothers by 2018 through MANSI; a fifteen-fold increase.
