How do we monitor and measure progress?
Access to timely, consistent, and accurate data is critical to achieving our goal of creating a world where all newborns have the same opportunities to grow and thrive.
Good data enables policy makers and implementers to track program success, enact appropriate policy changes, plan activities, and generally make informed decisions. On the monitoring & evaluation page, we provide links to recommended indicators and tools for collecting data on maternal and newborn health. In addition, we have a page on mortality audit, an important process for improving health care practice and outcomes. Featured below are also links to information on newborn health epidemiology and global, regional, and county data for key neonatal health indicators. In addition, our data visualization tool allows you to generate your own tables and graphs for quick analysis.
