Implementation Of Maternal And Child Health Innovations Important

In a Huffington Post opinion piece, USAID Administrator Rajiv Shah writes about the Saving Lives at Birth: A Grand Challenge in Development competition, which “called for groundbreaking prevention and treatment approaches for pregnant mothers and newborns around the time of birth in rural settings.”

“I was inspired by the ingenuity, focus and energy behind each proposal, which included innovations for promising new technologies and delivery methods … We know that it is not sufficient to simply develop a single innovation that can save lives. We also have to find ways to deliver these innovations to scale in order have countrywide impact for those in greatest need,” he writes (8/23).
