Survive & Thrive

Survive & Thrive

The Survive &Thrive Global Development Alliance is a partnership established to energize critical health care interventions during the time when mothers and their children are most vulnerable - from pregnancy through childbirth, and birth through age five. The alliance mobilizes U.S. obstetric, pediatric and midwifery professional associations alongside the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), private sector and civil society organizations in a first of its kind partnership to improve the quality of facility-based maternal, newborn and child health services to reduce preventable maternal and child deaths. This is achieved by:

  • Supporting and sustaining well-established high impact programs such as Helping Babies Breathe and Helping Mothers Survive.
  • Accelerating the efforts to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of these programs so that they can be scaled accordingly
  • Bringing affordable technologies and innovative educational materials and products to health professionals and their patients
  • Strengthen national professional associations in target countries
