Testing the recording of priority facility-based, maternal and newborn coverage indicators for use in health management information systems

Every Newborn Action Plan (ENAP) metrics facility based testing study is a two and a half years project that is implemented at Muhimbili National Hospital and Temeke Regional referral Hospital in Tanzania. The overall aim is to validate a proposed set of coverage indicators on care for mothers and newborns at and around the time of birth. The study team will work with the Ministry of Health Community Development Elderly and Children (MoHCDEC) and partners to improve measurement of core newborn and maternal health coverage indicators as identified by Every Newborn Action Plan (ENAP) and Ending Preventable Maternal Mortality (EPMM) for wide-scale use in routine health management information systems (HMIS).
