Description

Description of data capture Annual cluster household survey of individual women aged 13-49 about their uptake of health care, and the content of that health care during the pregnancy, intra-partum, and post-natal periods for their most recent live birth that occurred in the 12 months prior to survey date undertaken once a year. The household survey was conducted in 80 clusters from Gombe State, a total of 6,000 households. Clusters were defined as segmented enumeration areas. Cluster sampling was performed by listing all enumeration areas within intervention and comparison wards, cumulating their population size, and systematically selecting 40 from the list with probability proportional to size. All households in selected enumeration areas were listed, and enumeration areas segmented into groups of 75 or fewer households: field teams randomly selected one segment from each enumeration area as the cluster to be surveyed. Sampling completed in roughly 6,000 households across the 80 clusters (40 intervention clusters and 40 comparison clusters) for each round of data collection and with approximately 1,000 women with a live birth in the 12 months prior to the survey. The facility survey was completed every six months in the 97 primary health facilities providing services to household clusters plus 18 referral facilities in Gombe State. It comprised a readiness assessment, review of facility records and interviews with birth attendants. The facility questionnaire included a check list of staff, equipment, drugs, and infrastructure items present on the day of survey, and data extraction from maternity registers to ascertain facility workload during the last six months. In each facility, the birth attendant interview was conducted with the frontline worker who carried out the last delivery recorded in the maternity register. The questionnaire included questions about training and supervision, routine activities carried out, availability of supplies, workload during the last month and a detailed set of questions about behaviours during the last birth they attended.
