1M+ viewers: Salud Maternal Infantil reaches landmark audience across Latin America

The Salud Maternal Infantil website, designed and managed by URC’s USAID ASSIST Project, and our partner, the Latin America and Caribbean Newborn Health Alliance, recently reached an exciting landmark: over one million viewers across Latin America and the Caribbean.

The site provides health care workers with the latest technical and scientific information for maternal and child health. It fosters three communities of practice among community health workers- one focused on newborn sepsis, one on newborn resuscitation, and one on kangaroo mother care- allowing for the exchange of experiences in implementing evidence-based practices to improve the quality of maternal and child care across the region.

The USAID ASSIST Project works to improve the effectiveness, efficiency, client-centeredness, safety, accessibility, and equity of the health and family services in Latin America, the Caribbean, and countries around the world.
