Description

The IDEAS project sought to improve the health and survival of mothers and babies through generating evidence to inform policy and practice. One strand of work was an evaluation of Community Based Newborn Care (CBNC), a care package rolled out across the country by the Federal Government of Ethiopia. Under CBNC, frontline health workers provide ‘Four Cs’: contact with newborns; case identification of neotnatal sepsis; and care and completion of treatment. The aim of this study was to develop an understanding of the challenges to and opportunities for delivering the Four Cs; factors affecting the motivation of frontline health workers in delivering the Four Cs; factors affecting demand for newborn care – from the perspective of the frontline health workers; and the opportunities and challenges for communication, supervision and referral linkages. This data collection contains interview field notes, pre-analysis templates and supporting information from 16 randomly selected woredas – four each from four regions in Ethiopia: Oromia, Amhara, Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples (SNNP) and Tigray.
