Saving Mothers, Giving Life (SMGL)
  • Corporate Authors:
    National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (U.S.). Division of Reproductive Health.
  • Description:
    The design of the Saving Mothers, Giving Life (SMGL) Initiative strives to ensure that every pregnant woman has access to safe normal delivery services.

    If there is a problem during the birth, the woman should be able to get life-saving emergency obstetric and newborn care within 2 hours.

    The SMGL design builds on the existing district health networks, strategies, and facilities. Health staff use effective, proven medical interventions in health facilities at the time of labor, delivery, and early postpartum (the 48-hour period after birth) to prevent maternal and neonatal deaths.

    THE SMGL INITIATIVE’S DESIGN CAN SAVE LIVES. SMGL was first implemented in 4 districts of Uganda and 4 districts of Zambia.

    During the two and a half years from the beginning of the SMGL initiative to its midpoint (June 2012-December 2014) in the SMGL districts.
