Duke Study Validates Significant Healthcare Quality Improvements

Duke Study Validates Significant Healthcare Quality Improvements

A Note from the President

LifeNet teams in Burundi, Uganda, the DRC, and Malawi are hard at work every day to ensure that underserved and vulnerable patients can receive compassionate, life-saving care from their local health clinics. Seven years of internal monitoring and evaluation data have demonstrated that LifeNet’s work in local health facilities triples the quality of care for patients. 

I’m delighted to share an external validation of some of these quality improvements through this summary of a 15-month longitudinal study conducted by the Evidence Lab at the Duke Global Health Institute. The study was conducted in a subset of LifeNet partner facilities in Uganda and “provides evidence that the LifeNet clinical training intervention significantly improved maternal and neonatal healthcare quality.”

LifeNet President
