KHPT has won a ‘Special prize in the category of Health Interventions’ awarded by Azim Premji University’s Stories of Change Case Study Challenge for the documentation of its Kangaroo Mother Care (KMC) intervention. The case study, titled ‘Kangaroo Mother Care: Accelerating the uptake of a low-cost lifesaving method for low-birth-weight babies in Koppal district, Karnataka’ will be published in the fourth volume of the Stories of Change compendium along with nine others documenting development sector innovations. The case study, written by Vrinda Manocha, documents the three-year implementation of KMC in health facilities and within the community in Koppal district, and draws on interviews from project and field staff from KHPT and implementation partner St John’s Research Institute.
