  1. aThe LiST model continues to evolve, hence some interventions have been added since 2011, and others have been removed as the knowledge base changes. The final column provides details of the current status in version 5.45 (Sept 20 2016)
  2. bNew evidence from the updated Cochrane suggests that there is no effect of multiple micronutrient supplementation on stillbirths (RR 0.97, 95% CI 0.87–1.09) and this effect and it is likely that the technical working group will recommend that the effect is removed in subsequent LiST revisions
  3. cIntervention is labelled as IPTp (Intermittent prophylaxis and treatment of Malaria in pregnancy), or ITN (insecticide treated bednets), although the effectiveness estimate is from ITN alone
