This webinar will describe the role of implementation research to identify strategies and lessons learned for implementation and scale up of PSBI in Bangladesh. The authors of four recently published peer-reviewed articles -Jennifer Applegate, Salahuddin Ahmed, Mohammod Shahidullah- will highlight program feasibility, provider and caregiver acceptability, challenges, and solutions. The lessons from this implementation research will benefit countries in various stages of introduction, implementation, and scale up of the guideline for managing sick young infants with PSBI when referral is not feasible. Samira Aboubaker and Sara Holtz from the CIRCLE Project will moderate the webinar.
