Innovation Critical To Ending Preventable Maternal, Child Deaths

USAID’s “IMPACTblog”: Harnessing the Power of Innovation to Save Mothers and Children
Amie Batson, chief strategy officer and vice president of strategy and learning at PATH, discusses the role of innovation in accelerating progress toward ending preventable maternal and child deaths, writing, “USAID should focus even more attention on supporting countries to develop, introduce, and scale the highest-priority innovations … With increased support to harness the power of innovation, I’m optimistic that USAID, low- and middle-income country governments, partners like PATH, and other stakeholders can end preventable maternal and child deaths and build stronger health systems and communities” (10/18).
