Innovation Description

Partners In Health (PIH) developed a health-system capacity-strengthening model called All Babies Count (ABC) - an integrated, low-cost approach that boosts demand for antenatal and delivery services by improving patient satisfaction through patient-centered care. ABC is an intensive 18-month change acceleration process that (i) equips health workers with essential supplies; (ii) provides on-site, regular clinical mentorship to improve delivery of evidence-based interventions; and (iii) launches learning collaboratives to promote data utilization for continuous improvement.

Planned Goals and Milestones

Building on this success, PIH proposes a 3-year transition-to-scale project to apply the ABC model to 7 districts. ABC will train 546 health workers, increase facility-based delivery to 75%, reach 57,475 women, and save 638 newborns.
