On 13th February 2018, Carlos Moedas, Member of the EC in charge of Research, Science and Innovation, Mark Suzman, Chief Strategy Officer and President of Global Policy, Advocacy and Country Programs of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and Clarisse Lhoste, Managing Director of MSD Belgium and Luxembourg, awarded the Horizon Birth Day Prize at a ceremony in Brussels, Belgium.The 'Birth day' Prize is an initiative of the EC which has committed EUR 1 million, with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation pledging another EUR 1 million and a further EUR 500 000 donated by the MSD for Mothers.The EUR 1 million first winner awarded by EC went to the research team from the Institut de Recherche pour le Développement in France, led by Alexandre Dumont, Senior researcher at the Institut de Recherche pour le Développement. The solution, QUARITE (Quality of care, risk management, and technology in obstetrics to reduce hospital-based maternal mortality in Senegal and Mali), developed a method of analysing and tracing the causes of maternal deaths in hospitals in these two low-income countries, and then applied that knowledge to prevent more deaths. This reduced maternal deaths in hospitals overall by 15%, and by as much as 35% in district hospitals.CHAI MNH Nigeria is the 2nd winner of the Horizon Birth Day Prize. The €1 million award was committed by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. This is a managerial intervention at district level, involving health centres and hospitals and skilled birth attendants. It is an integrated programme focused on ensuring that at risk deliveries occurring in communities or health facilities are referred upwards in the system and dealt with on time.The 3rd winner is the WOMAN Trial run by Prof Haleema Shakur-Still and her team of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, tested and validated the use of a blood clot stabilising drug as a first line treatment for post-delivery bleeding, the leading cause of maternal mortality around the world. The EUR 500,000 cheque was awarded by MSD for Mothers.
