The Survive and Thrive initiative is a public-private partnership that will help reduce maternal and child deaths by bringing resources and expertise of professional associations, private sector and the U.S. Government together, focusing on critical health care interventions during pregnancy, childbirth and until the children reach five years in low resource countries. It was launched in Burma on March 2013. In Burma, the partnership will expand the coverage of quality and high impact maternal newborn services starting with essential newborn care, and link pediatricians, midwives, and obstetricians from American professional associations to peer associations to build capacity in service delivery.
Survive and Thrive will partner with civil society and professional and educational institutions, work within the Ministry of Health’s health system, support the programs of the 3MDG Fund, and maximize synergy with community-based programs of existing partners. USAID will engage Johnson and Johnson, Laerdal, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American College of Nurse Midwives and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists to peer associations in Burma to build capacity in service delivery for priority health interventions.
