MOMENTUM ME/IL WG invite you to join a webinar hosted by the EN-BIRTH2 team and Data for Impact (D4I) –Every Newborn-Measurement Improvement for Newborn & Stillbirth Indicators (EN-MINI) Tools for Routine Health Information Systems: Ensuring the right data at the right time and at the right level of the health care system to accelerate progress for newborn health
Every newborn has the right to survive and thrive, yet 4.4 million die each year as newborns and stillbirths. Timely and accurate data on coverage, equity, and quality of care are essential to track progress towards ending preventable stillbirths, newborn deaths, and disabilities. However the settings with the highest burden of deaths have the least data—the “inverse data law.”
EN-MINI tools were designed to advance newborn data in routine health information systems in support of the Every Newborn Action Plan (ENAP) to count Every Newborn through measurement, program-tracking, and accountability. The tools are free, easy to use, and generate automated reports for sub-national and national use.
The EN-MINI tools are ideally implemented as a package, but can be used individually to :
- map newborn data in routine health information systems.
- use newborn data for decision-making.
- improve newborn data quality.
During the webinar, we will demonstrate the EN-MINI tools and share findings from their application in Bangladesh and Tanzania. An interactive discussion will follow to explore how these tools can be used by implementing partners to strengthen newborn health data availability and use.
This webinar will be presented by representatives from the EN-BIRTH 2 study team who designed EN-MINI tools as part of collaborative implementation research between The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (UK), icddr,b (Bangladesh), Ifakara Health Institute (Tanzania), and Data for Impact (D4I) (US), with support from USAID.
