The First-time mother (FTM) questionnaire aims to capture information about adolescent and young first time mothers (ages 15-24) in Tanzania. The questions were developed specifically for baseline data collection for the quantitative impact evaluation of Save the Children’s Connect Project in Tanzania to capture information about the sample of FTMs who were recruited to participate in Connect programming. The survey was implemented in Tanzania from February to March 2023 by George Washington University and EDI Global.
The survey instrument collects demographic and sociocultural information and details regarding FTMs’ experiences with and perceptions of family planning and other maternal health services. The survey requires an average of 60 minutes for administration to each participant.
