Survive and Thrive: Professional Associations, Private Sector and Global Scholars Saving Mothers, Newborns and Children aims to improve the quality of facility-based maternal, newborn, and child health services in 24 focus countries. Several organizations – the American Academy of Pediatrics, American College of Nurse Midwives, American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, Johnson & Johnson, Laerdal Global Health, and Save the Children – have signed on to the partnership, initiated by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Survive and Thrive will “twin” members of U.S. professional health care associations with in-country professional association members to encourage learning and development through a peer-to-peer and partnership approach. This effort also seeks to mobilize and equip senior volunteer members from U.S., international, and national professional associations to strengthen the skills of health workers and champion maternal, newborn, and child health programs in low and middle income countries. In addition, the alliance will nurture emerging leaders in global health by creating Global Health Fellows, a new kind of internship opportunity for newly graduated clinicians. Fellows will have an opportunity to learn in-country, alongside leading experts from U.S. and in-country professional associations, to nurture a passion for global health, and go on to become teachers themselves, building the skills of future clinicians.
