A new collection of research and reviews on measuring intervention coverage for MNCH through househould surveys.
November 20, 2018
The Improving Coverage Measurement (ICM) project, with funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, brought together experts from academic and non-governmental institutions and survey programmes to generate evidence about the validity of MNCH coverage indicators and about approaches to improve coverage measurement. This Collection describes the research conducted by ICM, and also includes contributions from other initiatives addressing these questions. The studies included in this Collection include validation studies for antibiotic treatment for pneumonia, care-seeking for childhood illness, and interventions delivered in the intrapartum and postnatal period, as well as studies applying and comparing approaches for generating measures of effective coverage using population and health facility data.
