The Reduction of Maternal and Neonatal Mortality in Kenya Programme is a five-year UK Department for International Development (DFID) funded programme which is expected to contribute to preventing 1,092 maternal and 3,836 neonatal deaths by 2018. The expected outcome is increased access to and utilisation of quality maternal and newborn health services. The Programme supports a range of interventions to improve maternal and neonatal health (MNH) and is implemented in six counties with different sociodemographic contexts.
The three year evaluation (2016-2018) will assess the efficiency, effectiveness, relevance, equity and impact of the Programme. This initiative is funded by DFID and managed by UNICEF Kenya. The consortium contracted to evaluate the programme is led by hera, and also involves Itad, the Institute for Development Studies (IDS), and the Great Lakes University of Kisumu (GLUK).
