Our director, Ann Pettifor and project manager, Georgia Lee have just returned from extended visits to Sierra Leone and Ethiopia, as part of a DFID-funded project to reduce maternal and newborn mortality. Ai is part of a consortium that includes the London School of Hygiene and Tropical MedicineUniversity College London, IMMPACT in Aberdeen and the White Ribbon Alliance.

The consortium is led by Options, the sexual and reproductive health consultancy, and will work closely with African partners to deliver better maternal and neonatal health services and outcomes by using evidence more effectively to generate political commitment, strengthen accountability and improve planning and decision-making at all levels.

Ai’s visit to Ethiopia and Sierra Leone was part of a scoping exercise, to assess the maternal and newborn health landscapes in those countries.
