Countdown is working in India during 2023-2025, and this page will be updated soon with details of that collaboration.
During 2020-2022, Countdown worked in India and six other countries to understand the drivers of the major declines in maternal and newborn mortality over the past decades, as part of the Global Health Exemplars studies of Gates Ventures.The Countdown exemplar study in India was a partnership between International Institute for Population Sciences (IIPS), National Health Systems Resource Centre (NHSRC), the India Health Action Trust (IHAT), and the University of Manitoba, with support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation country office. All the Countdown exemplar studies had a similar mixed methods design.
