Similarities and Differences Between LiST and MANDATE

PurposeA Microsoft Windows-based software tool used to model the impact of scaling up health interventions aimed at reducing mortality and morbidity in mothers, newborns, and children under 5 years of ageA web-based, mathematical model designed to estimate maternal, fetal, and neonatal lives saved in sub-Saharan Africa and India
Conditions IncludedMaternal, fetal, newborn, and child health interventions; malaria interventions; and HIV/AIDS interventionsMaternal, fetal, and neonatal health interventions, excluding HIV/AIDS; malaria is only evaluated based on deaths directly attributable to malaria
Condition SpecificityCondition levelCondition and sub-condition level
Intervention SpecificitySometimes packages interventions (e.g., active management of the third stage of labor)Generally unpackages interventions to focus on a specific component of an intervention (e.g., oxytocin, uterine massage, types of diagnostics)
Intervention ConstructsCoverage, effectiveness; rates available for some interventions by setting, dependent on topicPenetration, utilization, efficacy, and transfer between care settings; rates available for each intervention by setting
Type of SoftwareSpectrum software packageWeb-based
Training and TutorialsUser manual, online tutorials, webinars, and technical assistanceOnline 15-minute tutorial and technical assistance
Cost to UseFreeFree
OutputsNumber of maternal and child (up to 5 years) deaths, mortality rates/ratios, deaths averted, intermediate outcomes (e.g., stunting, breastfeeding), and single- and multiple-country scenariosNumber of maternal, fetal, and newborn (up to 28 days) deaths, deaths averted, cases averted (e.g., postpartum hemorrhage, eclampsia), and single- and multiple-country scenarios
