Infographic: Vriddhi Contributes to Scale-Up of Community Management of Neonatal Sepsis
Sepsis (infection) causes many neonatal deaths, but is often curable if treated early and appropriately. Under Vriddhi, JSI supported the Jharkhand and Uttarakhand state governments to establish demonstration sites for community management of neonatal sepsis through Auxiliary Nurse Midwives (ANM). Vriddhi's work informed a scale up strategy with the potential to reach 1,972,000 babies born in these states per year, directly benefiting approximately 148,000 newborns with possible severe bacterial infections.
This infographic highlights the process JSI used in implementing the initiative - from evidence generation, to knowledge sharing, to scale-up across six states in India. JSI India, 2018.
