The PMA2020 Ethiopia Maternal and Newborn Health (PMA-MNH) study was conducted in Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples’ region (SNNPR), one of the nine regions in Ethiopia, from July 2016 to July 2017. The longitudinal household survey was designed to collect information on knowledge, practice and coverage of MNH services.
The study was implemented in the same 44 enumeration areas that were used in the first four rounds of the PMA2020 core survey. A census of all households was conducted to identify all currently pregnant women who self-reported a gestational age of six months or more. Women were interviewed at seven days, six weeks, and six months after birth. The successful implementation and results from the study informed the expansion of the grant into PMA Ethiopia.
