Health facilities worldwide are often unprepared for the complications that can arise in childbirth. The BetterBirth Program provides coaching and a birthing checklist that support better communication, preparation and birthing outcomes. The BetterBirth Program is being tested in a three-phase, randomized trial involving 172,000 births in 120 facilities in Uttar Pradesh, India. This northern state of India sees some of the world’s highest childbirth death rates.

The study is a partnership between Ariadne Labs and the following organizations:

  • Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation
  • World Health Organization
  • Population Services International
  • Governments of India and Uttar Pradesh
