Fox, M.J., et al., Assumptions and methods in the Lives Saved Tool (LiST). BMC Public Health, 2011.
The Lives Saved Tool (LiST) is a computer-based model that estimates the impact of increasing coverage of interventions on maternal, neonatal and child mortality. The model has its origins in earlier work from the Lancet Series papers that looked at estimating the impact of increasing coverage of proven interventions on child mortality  and neonatal mortality  as well as the impact of interventions related to nutrition and nutritional status of mothers and children . During the past four years, LiST has been developed into a free, publically available software tool that has been used by programs or organizations to estimate the impact of scaling up different interventions and thereby help in the health planning process.
