Review of Newborn Indicators in Maternal and Child Survival Program-Supported Countries

Publish Date: May 2016
Author: MCSP

This analysis of all MCSP high-impact newborn interventions aims to:

  • Understanding the similarities and differences across indicators in country performance monitoring plans (PMPs) will inform internal MCSP efforts to promote standardization of indicators across countries;
  • Lessons from country PMPs will shed a light on whether there is a need to propose modifications to the Global Performance Monitoring Plan; and
  • Understanding what indicators are already being collected and what the sources of the data are will contribute to global efforts to test the feasibility and validity of institutionalizing globally recommended indicators.
