March 30, 2016 – We are pleased to announce the start of the Lives Saved Tool (LiST) webinar initiative -- a monthly series of live, online teaching sessions for users to learn more about LiST functionalities and have their questions answered by the LiST team.
March 18, 2016 – Adrienne Clermont and Neff Walker of the LiST team traveled to Dakar, Senegal, to conduct a three-day workshop for staff from the Malian government who are working on the National Evaluation Platform.
February 25, 2016 – Malawi was selected by Countdown to 2015 to participate in a case study to evaluate its success in reducing under-5 mortality by two-thirds from 1990 to 2015.

January 30, 2016 – Dr. Neff Walker, Senior Scientist at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and head of the LiST team, is co-author on a recently published paper in The Lancet
January 12, 2016 - Students in the “Health: Science, Technology and Policy” Master’s program at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada had an opportunity to explore the Lives Saved Tool (LiST) software during a recent class session with guest lecturer Dr. Peter Berti, the Nutrition Advisor and Deputy Director of HealthBridge, a Canadian NGO. Using data from a HealthBridge maternal and child survival project in Pakur, India, students used LiST to project the impact on mortality rates through the program’s scale-up of life-saving interventions.
September 15, 2015 - UNICEF's 2015 progress report entitled "Committing to Child Survival: A Promise Renewed" featured LiST analysis to highlight equity gaps in child survival. The analysis showed that in high-mortality countries, the impact of scaling up national coverage of live-saving interventions to the level of coverage enjoyed by the top wealth quintile (the 20% richest people in that country) can be enormous.
