Global Maternal Health Conference 2013
The importance of monitoring and evaluation is needed not only for the success of a intervention, but for the evidence it provides for future programming. In Bangladesh, Jahan described the increased use and uptake of contraceptives through a community education program. Also in Bangladesh, McNab investigated the realist evaluation approach for MNH programs and explained how to conduct realist evaluations. In India, a “Yashoda” (legendary foster mother in Indian mythology) was placed in the hospital to provide support to the mother and baby. Varghese described the improvement of outcomes with this intervention. Health Child, Uganda shared their results of a community strengthening model. Soud described an intervention to reduce maternal and neonatal deaths in Uganda, finding documentation as a processes needing assistance.
