Postpartum Empowerment: An Integrated Approach Driving Demand and Delivery of High-Quality, Low-Cost Postnatal Services in Kenya

In this proposal we focus on the postpartum period, and compare several low-cost and easily scalable approaches to improve the uptake and quality of postnatal care - approaches that take advantage of our strengths in technology, task shifting, clinical checklists, and community sales networks. In Kenya fewer than 20% of women receive postnatal care in the six-week postpartum period. Our objective is to find a cost-effective way to increase coverage of postnatal care and postnatal family planning within our patient population.
