Safe Delivery Safe Mother (SDSM) won a competitive grant, called the Pitch by the Knowledge SUCCESS program awarded by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and USAID. SDSM won out of 80 global applicants to implement a data management and family planning program to strengthen reproductive healthcare in Pakistan. We built the capacity of frontline Skilled Birth Attendants (SBAs) of high-priority districts to provide quality and accessible postpartum family planning services at primary healthcare facilities in Punjab. Alongside, we equipped the provincial management information staff to strengthen the quality and accuracy of data collection, analysis and visualization of real-time daily and monthly data. This data is collected from all 36 districts of the Punjab province serving a population of over 110 million and is essential for compliance, monitoring, program design and key provincial policy decisions.
