Project: Neonatal Care

Kangaroo Mother Care (KMC) is an established intervention for reducing infant mortality and morbidity. It involves administering continuous skin-to-skin contact, frequent and exclusive (or near-exclusive) breastfeeding, and early discharge from hospital, making it feasible to implement in many low-resource settings. KMC Colombia and KMC Cameroon successfully piloted KMC in Cameroon.

Limestone Analytics was hired by an investor who was interested in joining a Development Impact Bond (DIB) financing mechanism designed to scale up this pilot from a single hospital to about 20 hospitals in 4 to 5 regions in Cameroon. To effectively advise the client, Limestone Analytics conducted the following:

  • Socio-economic feasibility study
  • Spatial analysis
  • Financial sustainability analysis
  • Risk analysis
  • Contract design and transaction advisory
  • Assessment of the monitoring and evaluation plan
  • Assessment of the performance management plan
