Maternal and Newborn Survival Initiative

Commitment by

American India Foundation

In 2009, the American India Foundation (AIF) committed to help improve maternal and newborn survival in the Jharkhand state's Seraikela Kharsawan district, one of India's poorest districts. AIF formed a public-private-civil society partnership model to increase institutional delivery and improve maternal and newborn health in the indigenous population. In addition, AIF supported the implementation of community-based newborn care to reduce newborn mortality and promoted governmental maternity benefits to improve skilled birth attendance at delivery.
