Since beginning the Making Every Baby Count Initiative (MEBCI) 2.0 in July 2020, Kybele set out to reduce institutional perinatal mortality (stillbirth and newborn death) in four high-volume referral hospitals in Ghana.
To achieve this goal, Kybele has been enlisted by the Children's Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF) to:
- Share our expertise to build the capacity of staff in advanced newborn clinical care
- Improve the operational processes for referral within and between hospitals
- Establish facility-level data dashboards to track outcomes and serve as an accountability resource for results
We’ve partnered with the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) to provide regular technical support and leadership for critical neonatal care capacity-building components of the initiative.
AAP experts have been serving as technical advisors to establish and enhance newborn clinical care and train health personnel in target health facilities.
Together, Kybele and AAP technical experts have led hands-on training and mentorship in our Clinical Care and Operational Processes Bundle—including Quality Improvement, Leadership, Labor and Delivery, Theatre and Recovery, Advanced Neonatal Resuscitation, Postnatal Care, and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit modules.
