Every Newborn-INDEPTH study: Improving the measurement of pregnancy outcomes in population-based surveys

Research

The EN-INDEPTH study (including publication costs) was funded by the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF) by means of a grant to LSHTM (PI Joy E. Lawn), and a sub-award to the INDEPTH MNCH working group with technical leadership by Makerere School of Public Health (PI Peter Waiswa). The articles have undergone the journal's standard peer review process for supplements. Supplement Editors did not handle peer review for manuscripts that they co-authored. The Supplement Editors declare no other competing interests.
