Baseline Study of Remote Areas Maternal and Newborn Health Project

Categories :

M & E Study

Completed

Family Health Division and Primary Health Care Revitalisation Division (PHCRD) designed a pilot study in Taplejung on access to and use of maternal and neonatal health services with the vision that if that study would be successful, it could be replicated in other remote districts as well. This baseline study was conducted to establish baseline indicators for MNH services so that the indicators can be used to design the effective MNH intervention and track the progress made by the intervention.

Objectives

• To assess current MNH service status and facility readiness to implement MNH services

• To understand current maternal and child health service utilisation trends (including ANC, PNC, delivery services)

• To explore service seeking behaviours of the Married Women of Reproductive Age (MWRA) and Recently Delivered Women (RDW) relating to MNCH services, its barriers and facilitators (social, cultural, economic and physical)

• To establish the baseline indicators particularly MNCH in the intervention areas.
