A guest blog sent by Ashley Ambrose: Concern Worldwide Sierra Leone’s Innovations Program Manager. This blog explains the successes of the Essential Newborn Care Corps project that links communities with health facilities to improve maternal and newborn health in Sierra Leone.

The Commission on Information and Accountability (COIA) tracks progress on maternal and child health and we've visualised the latest numbers.
