Community-Based Cause of Death Study Linked to Maternal and Child Health Program and Vital Statistics in Ethiopia (IMCHA)
While Ethiopia has successfully reduced under-five childhood mortality, there have been slower gains in reducing neonatal (newborn) and maternal mortality rates. About 220,000 children and mothers die every year in Ethiopia.
This project aims to support community-based services that will improve maternal health in Ethiopia, a country with some of the worst health indicators in sub-Saharan Africa.
