  • Description:
    Introduction -- SMGL monitoring and evaluation-- Results -- Conclusion -- Summary of key findings from SMGL phase 1.

    Saving Mothers, Giving Life (SMGL) is a 5-year initiative designed to rapidly reduce deaths related to pregnancy and childbirth through

    a coordinated approach that strengthens maternal health services in high-mortality settings. These evidence-based interventions are focused primarily on the critical period of labor, delivery, and 48 hours postpartum, when most maternal deaths and about half of newborn deaths occur. Coordinated and funded by a public-private partnership, SMGL strives to improve access to, demand for, and the quality of Emergency Obstetric and Newborn Care (EmONC). It also seeks to strengthen links to other essential services for women and children, including HIV prevention, care, and treatment, and family planning.

    SMGL began in June 2012 in eight districts, four each in Uganda and Zambia. Phase 1 (the pilot phase) activities took place from June 2012 through May 2013. Participating US Government agencies, along with partner governments and multiple partner organizations, enhanced existing district maternal and child health services to strengthen evidence-based interventions. Altogether, 107 health facilities in Uganda and 113 in Zambia that provided delivery care received support through the SMGL initiative. SMGL activities included routine monitoring during the first year of the project, including baseline and endline assessments before and after Phase 1.
