Ukraine Maternal and Infant Health Project (MIHP-II) - Improving maternal and infant health by implementing evidence-based technologies

Download this publicationThe Maternal and Infant Health Project (MIHP) began in Ukraine on October 1, 2002 with the goal of implementing evidence-based technologies to improve the quality of perinatal care. In 2006, USAID awarded the second phase of the initiative, MIHP-II, which expanded MIHP services and key evidence-based medicine interventions to 20 of Ukraine’s 27 administrative territories by 2011. This was accomplished by directly increasing the use of evidence-based maternal and newborn health care practices, services, and resources covering over half of all births in Ukraine, and indirectly covering 65% of all births. This report summarizes MIHP-II’s years of project implementation, and focuses on the project’s successes, lessons learned, constraints, and legacy. JSI/Mother and Infant Health project. 2011.
