This IDEAS study of the interactions between families and frontline workers and coverage of critical interventions for mothers and newborns was conducted between November 2012 and November 2015 in the State of Uttar Pradesh, India.
It is one of three country-specific reports, along with Ethiopia and North Eastern Nigeria.
It follows from the 2013 Baseline findings from Uttar Pradesh, India.
The aim was to estimate changes in maternal and newborn health care in areas where Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation implementation projects were operating, with three active projects in the region:
- Better Birth
- The Community Mobilisation Project
The main body of this report focuses on change in indicators that were expected to improve as a result of the specific implementation activities in place in the study area.
This study was not designed to reflect progress of individual projects, but to understand changes arising as a result of investments made by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation strategy for maternal and newborn health.
