Effects of a community-based data for decision-making intervention on maternal and newborn health care practices in Ethiopia: a dose-response study
Between July 2013 and January 2015, a health management information system for the WDA’s Community-Based Data for Decision-Making (CBDDM) strategy was implemented in 115 rural districts to improve the demand for and utilization of maternal and newborn health services. Using the CBDDM strategy, Health Extension Workers (HEWs) fostered the WDA and community leaders to inform, lead, own, plan, and monitor the maternal and newborn health interventions in their kebeles (communities). This paper examines the effectiveness of the CBDDM strategy.
