Assessing Newborn Care Services

Authored by the Newborn Indicators Technical Working Group in tandem with the Saving Newborn Lives program at Save the Children in 2012, this tool includes indicators and questions for assessing newborn care services at facilities. In order to keep the tool short, tracer indicators were identified to assess whether a facility is able to address the three major causes of newborn deaths – intrapartum causes (birth asphyxia), preterm births, and infection.
