EnCompass was an evaluation and learning partner for Save the Children’s Saving Newborn Lives program, a globally recognized leader in newborn health supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Saving Newborn Lives worked in 18 countries to advocate for and bring high-impact newborn services and practices to scale. One of EnCompass’ responsibilities was to ensure monitoring and evaluation approaches and activities considered the impacts of all global, regional, and national stakeholders.

EnCompass completed a number of mixed methods evaluations and special analyses to assess the impact and effect SNL is having on the global newborn health community. This included external midterm and final evaluations; design of a theory of change; developments of a grants’ monitoring, evaluation, and learning plan; and annual performance reviews in all countries where the program was operating, and at the global level. We also performed a series of network analyses, including one for the stillbirth community that was featured in The Lancet in December 2016.
