Project Title:

Reducing Maternal and Neonatal Mortality in Indonesia
PIN: PGA-OFS-11-04        

Major Unit:

Policy and Global Affairs

Sub Unit: Office of the Foreign Secretaries

RSO: Greene, Michael

Subject/Focus Area: Health and Medicine; International Issues

Project Scope
The United States National Research Council and the Indonesian Academy of Science will together form an expert study committee that will carry out the following tasks: (1) Compile and evaluate the quality and consistency of existing data relating to maternal and neonatal mortality. This will include time and space incidence of fatalities, causes of death, interventions implemented, their coverage and effectiveness, and identification of gaps. (2) Devise a strategy utilizing evidence-based decision-making to achieve the Millennium Development Goals relating to maternal, neonatal mortality and stillbirth in Indonesia. Elements of the strategy may include facilities, technologies, human resources, finances, and quality assurance. (3) Identify the highest priority interventions and propose steps toward development of an effective implementation plan. (4) Use the study process and a special internship to train the staff of the Indonesian Academy of Science to enable it to independently carryout similar science policy studies in the future. An expert will design and assist staff to use a project accounting system for donor funded projects. The resulting report will be externally reviewed in accordance with the procedures of the National Academies’ Report Review Committee, and published in English and Indonesian. Once the report is published, members of the committee will be available to discuss the recommendations in public forums and to brief public officials.

The project is sponsored by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).
The approximate start date for the project is October 1, 2012.
A report will be issued at the end of the project in approximately 18 months
