Post-natal care services – Value for Money case study

Sierra Leone

The Project

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.

Highlights

  • The team from LAMP combined Health Economics experts with locally based Researchers
  • The analysis identified opportunities to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of PNC services through better deployment of health workers and improving quality of care indicators
  • A wide range of stakeholders were involved from the Ministry of Health to Community Health workers across three Districts

Client Testimonial

The analysis on the case study was very useful for the implementing partners and for users of the report to see the impact of the interventions in monetary and statistical terms… the benefits of both interventions were clearly seen.”“The analysis was well explained and statistical figures were given to back up their claims. The tools used to compute these figures were offered to the programme should we want to use them in the future.”“LAMP were also very proactive in data collection and were flexible with regards to challenges in obtaining required data; they were quick to come up with alternative methods to capture data and were able to make use of the limited data available.
