Post-natal care services – Value for Money case studySierra Leone
A case-study approach was used to investigate Value for Money within two different programmes implementing post-natal care (PNC) services for women and children in Sierra Leone. The two programmes are funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID) as part of the Integrated Reproductive, Maternal, Neonatal and Child Health (IRMNH) programme. The analysis examined the impact of each programme in terms of targeting women and children and uptake of PNC services. It also looked at Value for Money at each stage of the results chain and investigated opportunities to improve effectiveness and efficiency within each intervention.
