Committee on Reducing Maternal and NEONATAL Mortality in Indonesia

Project Scope

The United States Naitonal Research Council (NRC) and the Indonesian Academy of Sciences (AIPI) will 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 utilitzing evidence-based decision-making to achieve the Millennium Development Goals relating to maternal, neonatal mortality andstillbirth 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 AIPI to enable it to independently carryout similar science policy studies in the future.
