20230510T1150 20230510T1305 Africa/Johannesburg An Evidence Review of Four Small and Sick Newborn Care Coverage Indicators for Measurement in Routine Health Information Systems (RHISs)

The Ending Preventable Maternal Mortality (EPMM) and Every Newborn Action Plan (ENAP) partnership includes a mandate for national targets of fewer than 12 newborn deaths per 1,000 live births and fewer than 12 stillbirths per 1,000 live births by 2030. Given that around two-thirds of newborn deaths are associated with intrapartum complications, preterm birth, and infection, the plan includes a priority for improving coverage measurement of neonatal resuscitation, kangaroo mother care (KMC), antibiotic treatment of severe neonatal infections, and antenatal corticosteroid (ACS). A growing body of evidence suggests there are potential opportunities for more accurately capturing data on complex clinical interventions in routine health information systems (RHISs), rather than population-based surveys. In response, we have completed an evidence review for the measurement of these four indicators in RHISs. Linked with the updated EPMM/ENAP measurement improvement roadmap, this panel will provide a deep dive into the availability and quality of RHIS data for action. We have less than seven years remaining to meet Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) targets for ending preventable maternal and newborn deaths and stillbirths. We cannot succeed without improving the availability and quality of data for local use for these four high-impact interventions. We propose three abstracts aimed to galvanise country-level data use for action, and outlining the process and findings for each indicator. The panel discussion will include representatives from across the globe to discuss their experiences of how, together, we can overcome barriers to quality and use of RHIS data.
