Evaluation of an Integrated Maternal and Newborn Health Care Program

Monitoring, documentation and evaluation of an Integrated Maternal and Newborn Health Care Program in Morogoro Region (Tanzania)

The goal of this project is to improve maternal, newborn and child health outcomes by identifying optimal strategies for implementation and sustained delivery of evidence-based, cost-effective, culturally acceptable, and integrated maternal newborn care interventions with attention to both HIV positive and negative mothers and infants. 

This is an external evaluation of the “Integrated Maternal and Newborn Health Care Program in Morogoro Region, Tanzania.”  The Integrated Program is a maternal, newborn, postpartum care, and HIV/AIDS program implemented by the Tanzania Ministry of Health and Social Welfare (MOHSW) with technical support from Jhpiego and other partners.  The main components of the Integrated Program include capacity building at health facilities and development of a Community Health Worker (CHW) program to provide behavior change communication (BCC).
