MOMI - Missed Opportunities in Maternal and Infant Health: reducing maternal and newborn mortality and morbidity in the year after childbirth through combined facility- and community-based interventions
The effectiveness and impact of these intervention packages on the respective health systems as well as on population (maternal and newborn) health outcomes will be studied (year 3 to year 5).
The individual and cross-country analysis of the effectiveness of the postpartum intervention packages will create knowledge on health system options for delivery of postpartum care.
Planned dissemination of these findings will enable us to provide health policy recommendations concerning postpartum health care delivery applicable to other sub-Saharan African countries, or low- and middle- income countries elsewhere (year 5).
Capacity strengthening, and reporting and dissemination of research results will occur throughout the research cycle, with the latter two components a major feature of the final project phase.
