Post-natal care services case study

Location Sierra Leone

The Project

A case-study approach was used to investigate value for money within two different programmes implementing post-natal care (PNC) services for women and children in Sierra Leone. The two programmes were funded by UK Aid as part of the Integrated Reproductive, Maternal, Neonatal and Child Health (IRMNH) programme. The analysis examined the impact of each programme in terms of targeting women and children and uptake of PNC services. It also looked at value for money at each stage of the results chain and investigated opportunities to improve effectiveness and efficiency within each intervention.

Impact

  • The team from LAMP combined Health Economics experts with locally based Researchers
  • The analysis identified opportunities to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of PNC services through better deployment of health workers and improving quality of care indicators
  • A wide range of stakeholders were involved from the Ministry of Health to Community Health workers across three Districts
