Our Research

The results of our research are used by country-specific and global policymakers and programs to improve the care of millions of women and their infants in low-resource settings.

Since 2005, we have led dozens of studies in low-income countries investigating key questions related to community-based care for mothers and newborns, such as postnatal care home visits, umbilical cord-cleansing practices and simplified antibiotic treatment for newborn infections. 

Ongoing studies in Africa and Asia investigate essential questions related to maternal and newborn survival, such as:

The AMANHI Study

The Alliance for Maternal and Newborn Health Improvement (AMANHI) study in Sylhet district, Bangladesh, is using ongoing newborn intervention trials to obtain data critical to maternal, fetal and newborn health.

Integrated Maternal and Newborn Care

This study in Morogoro, Tanzania is evaluating strategies for integrating care for HIV positive and negative mothers and infants.
