Lives Saved Tool (LiST) Implementation
A consortium of academic and international organizations, led by the Institute of International Programs at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School, and supported by a Gates Foundation grant to the US Fund for UNICEF, has developed a user-friendly tool to estimate the impact of scaling-up maternal, newborn and child health interventions, known as the Lives Saved Tool (LiST). More information about the tool can be found here: http://idfive.jhsph.edu/departments/international-health/centers-and-institutes/institute-for-international-programs/current-projects/lives-saved-tool/
World Vision (WV) seeks to implement LiST in its national offices to: 1) promote evidence-based decision making, by identifying health, nutrition, and WASH interventions with the highest proven and potential for impact in a given setting, and 2) aid in planning the expansion of maternal, neonatal and child health interventions. The purpose of the projects will be to support WV National Office Health Teams (NOs) in setting up operational mechanisms and processes for collecting and reporting on programming implementation monitoring data that will be used to demonstrate the evidence-based contribution of WV in averting under-five (U5) morbidity and stunting, as well as the number of U5 lives saved, at the national-level. The project aims to build WV staff capacity in the use of LiST, to foster future learning and institutionalization of the tool within the origanization.
