Quantification Tool for Neonatal Resuscitation Devices: Version 1

This national-level quantification tool can be used to develop estimated needs for newborn resuscitation devices. It is designed only to provide estimates of product quantities for planning and cost simulations and is not intended for planning detailed distribution. There are two Excel-based formats of the tool: The enhanced format includes simple design elements, such as graphics and navigation arrows, to guide users through the tool. The standard format retains the cell-based formatting of a traditional Excel file. Both versions contain the same information and formulas and will yield the same data. We invite users to choose the presentation that best meets their needs.

HealthTech Report: Market Sizing Estimates for Neonatal Resuscitation Equipment

The UN Commission on Life-Saving Commodities for Women and Children was launched in 2012 to increase access to lifesaving commodities in the world's poorest countries, and neonatal resuscitation devices were selected as one of the lifesaving commodities. The objective of PATH’s market sizing is to estimate the total market size for newborn resuscitation commodities in eight African countries. The market size estimates reflect the total number of commodities each country will need to provide resuscitation care to newborns born in facilities.

UN Commission on Life-Saving Commodities Technical Reference Team Briefs

The UN Commission on Life-Saving Commodities for Women and Children (the Commission) was formed in 2012 by the UN Secretary-General as a part of the Every Woman Every Child movement. The Commission’s framework for action outlines a priority list of 13 commodities and 10 cross-cutting recommendations to rapidly increase access and use. To help carry forward the Commission’s recommendations at the global and national levels, Global Technical Reference Teams (TRT) were established. One group was formed for each of the 13 commodities and 10 recommendations, and an advocacy working group is dedicated to advancing their cross-cutting goals. The advocacy working group, convened by PATH, developed a series of briefs highlighting the major goals, challenges, and activities of each TRT.

FoneAstra Milk Pasteurization Monitor: Building Capacity of Small-Scale Human Milk Banks

This poster was presented in March 2013 at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation's Grand Challenge Explorations awardee meeting for nutrition and agriculture. The poster describes PATH and our partners' work to ensure the safety of donated human breast milk using FoneAstra, a smart phone−based device that has been adapted to monitor temperatures during flash-heat pasteurization. PATH and our partners are evaluating the system for use in resource-limited human milk banks.
