MDGi project baseline studies (2014-2015)

Three baseline reports at the start of the MDGi health project in Lusaka and Copperbelt

Mother and child


MDGi’s interventions are based on the data and findings obtained in baseline assessments that were completed during the inception phase of the programme. The baselines were intended to ensure that MDGi is designed on the basis of current, quality data, which identifies the most appropriate and effective strategies to accelerate the reduction of maternal and child mortality.
