The Performance Monitoring for Action Ethiopia (PMA Ethiopia) project, a partnership between Johns Hopkins University (JHU) and Addis Ababa University (AAU), implemented a longitudinal survey that enrolled and followed pregnant women throughout their pregnancy and the postpartum period. PMA Ethiopia interviewed women at six-weeks, six-months, and one-year postpartum to fill the data gap in priority maternal and newborn health (MNH) indicators in Ethiopia and assess factors associated with the initiation and continuation of care during this critical time for MNH health and development. This report summarizes key findings from the six-month postpartum survey.
