About the Every Newborn INDEPTH study

Background to EN-INDEPTH

Every year there are roughly 5.1 neonatal deaths and stillbirths and 300,000 maternal deaths worldwide.

The Every Newborn Action Plan (ENAP) and roadmap is a commitment to end preventable newborn deaths and stillbirths.

To achieve this, timely data on outcomes and coverage are crucial.

The Every Newborn-INDEPTH study was established to provide evidence to improve population-based survey data regarding pregnancy outcomes.

It was conducted in five Health and Demographic Surveillance System Sites:

  • Bangladesh
  • Ethiopia
  • Ghana
  • Guinea-Bissau
  • Uganda

With a co-ordinating team at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and Makerere University School of Public Health.
