Recap of 50,000 Happy Birthdays: Learnings from a life-saving project webinar

18 August 2020

From 2018 – 2020, the 50,000 Happy Birthdays Project contributed substantially to quality maternal and newborn care in Ethiopia, Tanzania, and Rwanda by strengthening midwives’ competencies in saving lives at birth. Ultimately, this project enabled midwives to save thousands of mothers and babies across all three countries.

Across the project implementation sites, a 26% reduction in stillbirth rates was seen in Ethiopia, a 57% reduction in newborn deaths in Rwanda and a 33% reduction in maternal deaths in Tanzania.
