The aim of Health Research Challenge for Impact (HRCI) Cooperative Agreement (CA) was to accelerate the development and introduction of new, feasible, culturally acceptable, low cost, preventive and curative interventions for the main causes of maternal, newborn and child (MNC) deaths. To achieve this aim, the Department of International Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (JHBSPH) established a partnership that included the field presence and experience of Save the Children and leading research institutions in both Africa and Asia. These have included The Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Science in Tanzania (MUHAS), International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research in Bangladesh (ICDDR,B), Shimantik in Bangladesh, and the National Population Commission of Nigeria, among others.
