Advisor, Monitoring & Evaluation, Saving Newborn Lives - Save the Children


Advisor, Monitoring & Evaluation, Saving Newborn Lives (Job Code: AME-SNL)
Save the Children, India
Location: New Delhi with travel as needed
Last date of Applications: 22nd December 2013
Save the Children (SC) is the world’s leading independent child rights’ organization: it fights for children’s rights and delivers immediate and lasting improvement to children’s lives worldwide. SC has existed in India since the pre-Independence days. Save the Children, India (SCI) is the 28th independent member of the International Save the Children Movement. 
SC has agreed to make Newborn and Child Survival (NCS) the focus of their premier campaign around the world over the next 5 years with SCI playing a lead role in the campaign. In October 2009, SCI launched the EVERY ONE campaign. Our vision is that no child under the age of five die from preventable causes, and public attitudes in India will not tolerate a return to previously high levels of infant and child deaths. Our goal is that Millennium Development Goal 4 is achieved.
The Saving Newborn Lives (SNL) program of Save the Children, an initiative funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, has made a major contribution over the last decade in bringing the issue of newborn survival to global and national agendas. It has produced landmark publications on critical newborn needs, helped in identifying interventions to address the major killers of newborns, and assisted 19 countries in developing policies and strategies for newborn health including introduction of cost-effective new interventions. In India, SNL led the development of the country’s first ever report on newborn health titled ‘The State of India’s Newborns’ in 2004, and facilitated the development and sharing of SEARCH’s ground-breaking field trial on ‘Home-Based Newborn Care’ which has now been adopted by the Government of India as one of the key national health programs.
There is growing recognition that the key to achieving MDG-4 is to tackle the increasing proportion of neonatal mortality as a subset of under-five mortality, and the next critical step is to demonstrate effective implementation at scale of the newborn health programs. In order to ‘bend the curve’, SNL in its third phase (2013-2017) is working through active collaborations and strategic partnerships in India to develop, apply and document successful implementation approaches to achieve effective coverage at scale.
