Dear DHS colleagues,

Many thanks for the opportunity to provide suggestions for deletions and requests for additions or changes to the DHS questionnaire. We appreciate your willingness to consider our evidence based submissions for the DHS8 revision process.

Our submission is from a technical working group, supported by USAID's Maternal and Child Survival Program (MCSP) and Save the Children, and co-chaired by Melinda Munos, Johns Hopkins University, Jennifer Requejo, UNICEF (Health and HIV team, Data & Analytics), and Liliana Carvajal, UNICEF (Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health team, Data & Analytics). The working group included a broad list of technical experts in newborn health and measurement. The working group convened an expert consultation to ensure broad input and consensus in the community on the recommendations. The recommendations were presented to the ENAP/EPMM metrics working group and to the World Health Organization's MoNITOR for additional vetting, and were reviewed by the Improve (formerly Improving Coverage Measurement) working group.

Thank you again for giving us the chance to provide inputs, and we wish you the best of luck in the revision process!

With best wishes on behalf of the working group,
Melinda Munos, Jennifer Requejo, and Liliana Carvajal
