Newborn Care Kit Project Update October 2020

Almost every newborn death should be preventable. However, this year, almost 3 million newborns will die within their first month. With 46 newborn deaths for every 1000 live births, Pakistan has the highest newborn mortality rate in the world.

With your support, along with generous donations from two Canadian-based funding agencies, we have raised enough money to distribute kits to approximately 13,700 pregnant women in Northern Pakistan and to study the impact of distributing these kits.

We aim to begin distributing these life-saving kits, and education on usage, to pregnant women in rural areas of Pakistan in May 2021. While we procure supplies, and finalize our plan to handle the difficult logistics for this important next phase of work, we will continue to raise funds for additional kits and data monitoring.

Our long-term goal is to gather enough evidence to present to local and national governments to gain support for wide scaled-up sustainable distribution of the kit in Pakistan and other similar resource-constrained settings.

Thank you for your support in helping us achieve our goal.
