Bungoma MNH Project Sun, 11 Jan 2015 07:28:50 +0000 admin IHPMR is part of the Options-led consortium of 8 agencies (CARE Kenya, AMREF, Population Council, MannionDaniels, KPMG, IHPMR and MSI) which is implementing a programme to reduce maternal and neonatal mortality in Bungoma County. The program will run from January 2015 to December 2017.  The expected outcome is an increased access to and utilisation of quality maternal and newborn health services.  The programme is expected to contribute to preventing 1,092 maternal and 3,836 neonatal deaths by 2018.

The programme’s strategy focuses on reducing the three common delays women face in accessing quality maternal and neonatal care, especially in Bungoma County:

–      Delay in decision to seek care

–      Delay in reaching care

–      Delay in receiving adequate health care

The Consortium will deliver the programme results under three integrated outputs:

  • Output 1: Strengthening health systems to manage and deliver quality maternal and newborn health (MNH) services, to ensure that women and newborns receive quality services (delay 3).
  • Output 2: Increasing demand for and uptake of MNH services to ensure that mothers and newborns seek and access the appropriate care (delays 1 and 2).
  • Output 3: Establishing and managing a Maternal and Newborn Health Innovations Challenge Fund to support innovative approaches to addressing challenges across the three delays.

IHPMR will be supporting the achievement of Output 1 and Output 2.Under Output 1; IHPMR will lead the technical assistance to strengthen the medical supply chain in Bungoma County. Under Output 2, IHPMR will be implementing the Integrated Quality Management System (IQMS).IQMS is an indicator based quality management system that approaches quality from various perspectives, including those of patients and staff.
