In Nigeria, MCSP focused on improving maternal and newborn health care services in Ebonyi and Kogi states by implementing high-impact interventions for better care on the day of birth when most maternal and newborn deaths occur.
To determine the effect of MCSP’s RMNH quality improvement interventions in health facilities, baseline and endline quality of care (QoC) and health facility readiness assessments were conducted at a sample of health facilities in Kogi and Ebonyi states that received quality improvement interventions implemented by MCSP and the state Ministries of Health in the first phase of project implementation. The QoC assessment had three components: 1) MNH QoC assessment, 2) Family planning (FP) QoC assessment, and 3) facility readiness and service availability assessment. This report focuses on the third component.
