Joint Helping Mothers and Babies Survive Implementation Briefs

This suite of six implementation briefs was designed to support teams in implementing Helping Mothers Survive (HMS) and Helping Babies Survive (HBS) learning modules. The briefs help ensure highly effective and sustainable programming by providing an overview of the training approach and implementation guidance. Jhpiego is grateful for the expertise and collaboration of members of the Survive & Thrive Global Development Alliance, including contributions from the American Academy of Pediatrics, University Research Co., Laerdal, American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, and American College of Nurse-Midwives.
