    Interventions at the home and community level provide a unique bottom-up approach to improve maternal and newborn health. In Nigeria, Theophilus described the use, successes, and future improvements for distributing Clean Delivery Kits (CDK) coupled with Fapohunda's finding that there is an alarming number of women who are delivering with non-skilled or no attendant at all. In Bangladesh, Sikder found that employment and socioeconomic status were indicators of empowerment for maternal health decisions, yet cultural conceptions that lead to poor health outcomes must be addressed. Also in Bangladesh, Khatun found that traditional birth attendants liked CKDs and future programming should encourage this.
