Over the last 15 years, newborn health has garnered increased attention, and individuals, organizations, and communities of organizations have emerged to work on newborn health and survival at both global and country levels. Save the Children’s Saving Newborn Lives (SNL) program commissioned EnCompass LLC to conduct a series of five organizational network analyses (ONA) to gain insight into the current functioning of newborn communities in Bangladesh, Malawi, Nepal, Uganda, and at the global level. ONA is a technique that maps interactions between organizations and identifies relationship structures and patterns. The five ONAs included in this study are intended to encourage reflection and guide the charting of a pathway to maintain momentum for newborn health and survival by identifying appropriate actions to enhance future sustainability and specific organizations that could play key roles in sustaining the momentum over time.
