EVERY PREEMIE—SCALE was a five-year $9 million USAID Cooperative Agreement

The project was designed to provide practical, catalytic, and scalable approaches for expanding uptake of preterm birth (PTB) and low birth weight (LBW) interventions in 24 USAID priority countries predominantly in Africa and Asia.

Every Preemie was implemented between October 2014 and September 2019 by a consortium of partners comprised of Project Concern International (PCI), the Global Alliance to Prevent Prematurity and Stillbirth (GAPPS), and the American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM).  PCI led overall project management, global and partner engagement, and supported research and learning; GAPPS led evidence, research and learning activities; and ACNM led health provider capacity building and performance improvement activities.

With a focus on moving evidence to action, Every Preemie worked across three main areas:

  • Implementation research in four countries
  • Development of a new model of care for small and sick newborns: Family-Led Care
  • Global engagement and collaboration
