Demand Generation I-Kit for Underutilized, Life Saving Commodities

Spotlight on Neonatal Resuscitation for Birth Asphyxia

Basic resuscitation equipment is not available in many low-resource settings, and was therefore identified by the UN Commission on Life-Saving Commodities for Women’s and Children’s Health as one of 13 commodities that if more widely accessed and properly used, could save the lives of more than six million women and children worldwide.

A review was conducted to analyze and synthesize current key evidence in order to understand the social and behavioral drivers of resuscitation devices demand and utilization, examine effective practices in implementing demand generation programs, and inform future programming. The literature review found four articles—documenting evidence from Senegal, Pakistan, Kenya and Malawi—related to provider attitudes, knowledge, skills and practice regarding neonatal resuscitation, all of which were published in the peer-reviewed literature.
