The proposal led by Rice University at Houston, Texas entitled “Improving newborn survival in Africa” in which the MARCH Centre at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine is a collaborator, has been one of the eight shortlisted from a total of 1904 applications, and it is the only one made by university partners. The team behind this proposal will present a brief overview followed by a discussion with the audience, particularly welcoming ideas on evaluation.
