This 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 contributions of the Every Newborn INDEPTH Study Collaborator Group was important in providing the review of the evidence and supplementary pre-publication findings from the study of a randomised comparison of DHS-7 Full Birth History+ and a pregnancy history approach for the capture of stillbirths.
The recommendations were then presented for vetting to the ENAP/EPMM metrics working group and to the World Health Organization's MoNITOR and to the Core Stillbirth Estimation Group of the United Nations Interagency Group for Child Mortality Estimation (UN-IGME) who now also undertake global stillbirth estimates. Annex B lists the names of members of the technical working group, and participants in the technical consultation.
