Overall Goal

Create demand, and improve access and uptake of Maternal Newborn, and child health services.

 

Background

Deaths resulting from complications during pregnancy or childbearing remain notably high in Kenya. Maternal and infant mortality causes can be  attributed to:

  1. Low baseline ANC visits 1 and 4-which the county continues to struggle with.
  2. Poor skilled birth attendance and immunization coverage which is mainly attributed to disparities in services within HFs and inconsistent ANC attendance.
  3. Poor infrastructure and human resource
  4. Poor access to health services and cultural diversities across the county.
  5. Insecurity –key impediment to implementation across the county.
