Narrative description of project:
The Saving Newborn Lives (SNL) project, funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and implemented by Saving Newborn Lives / Save The Children, has operated as a catalyst to prioritize and accelerate progress in newborn survival and health through collaborative partnerships for more than 15 years. For its third grant (2013–2017), SNL seeks to “bend the curve” on newborn health by working with partners to take key newborn interventions to scale. SNL 3 focuses on maintaining momentum for newborn care and survival at the global level, institutionalizing newborn health interventions at high effective coverage in four “tier 1” countries (Bangladesh, Nepal, Malawi, and Uganda), and targeting specific issues to enhance progress where SNL has a comparative advantage in the Gates Foundation’s key geographies (Ethiopia, India, and Nigeria) — SNL’s “tier 2” countries.

EnCompass LLC was contracted to conduct the external mid-term evaluation. hera was sub-contracted by EnCompass to provide the services of one consultant.
