Trends in Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health Care Practices in 115 L10K Woredas

Download this publicationIn December 2008, The Last Ten Kilometers: What it takes to Improve Health in Rural Ethiopia (L10K) project, funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and implemented by JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc. (JSI), implemented community-based strategies to improve reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health (RMNCH) care-seeking behavior and practices.

Over the course of L10K, the project conducted three rounds of household and community surveys to measure the impact of project innovations on RMNCH care-seeking behavior and practices. This summary report presents across-survey changes in: 1) the kebele health system support of HEP; 2) access and exposure to RMNCH messages and services; and 3) RMNCH behavior and practices. The report discusses the adequacy of these changes and identifies gaps that need closing. JSI, 2015
