Saving lives with clean safe care at birth
The Soapbox Collaborative was established in 2012 to inform and influence action by policy-makers, managers and the health workforce to reduce healthcare associated infections and deaths in mothers and newborns delivered in hospitals in low and middle-income countries.
Soapbox’s work was evidence-based; with teams based at two UK hub institutions – the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and the University of Aberdeen, undertaking research to strengthen understanding of healthcare associated infections and developing effective interventions to support quality improvement of hygiene standards in maternity units.
This site is an archive of resources relating to Soapbox’s seven years of work. The material reflects the diverse nature of Soapbox’s activities, and the wide range of partners we were privileged to engage with around the world.
The Soapbox Collaborative (SC047281) was a Scottish Registered Charity from 2012-2019.
