Research: A journey to safer births

Safer Births is based on 12 years of research and collaboration, resulting in more than 100 published research papers.
Proven results
Our approach combines innovative tools with feedback and new  learning methodologies that have demonstrated success. When implemented well, it’s been shown to reduce newborn deaths by 50%.

Evidence-based innovations

The Safer Births Innovations enable healthcare providers to make time-critical lifesaving decisions on the spot. The Safer Births Bundle of Care is a collection of training and clinical tools to help prevent and treat the leading causes of newborn and maternal death.

Local projects, global reach

Safer Births was developed and launched at Haydom Hospital in Tanzania. The Safer Births Bundle of Care is now being scaled up to 30 hospitals covering 100,000 births anually. Safer Births projects are also ongoing in other countries.
We’ve learned that solutions developed in low-resource countries are equally valuable for high-income countries.
It’s our goal that Safer Births will be widely adopted and implemented around the world.
