The United States Agency for International Development (USAID), Ethiopia; Analysis of areas of greatest impact for reproductive, maternal, new-born and child health (RMNCH) (July 2015- August 2016):
USAID Ethiopia had undertaken the mapping of RMNCH status in the country at the lowest administrative level, in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH), through an activity entitled ‘Analysis of greatest impact for reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health (RMNCH)’. The mapping was conducted in all the woredas of Amhara, Oromia, Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples (SNNP), Harari, Gambella and Tigray regions, and Addis Ababa as well as Dire Dawa. The purpose of the mapping was to categorize woredas and kebeles based on their recent RMNCH performance data and prioritize the woredas and kebeles of high need and a high potential for future-focused, evidence-based interventions. ABH illustrated RMNCH status in Ethiopia by woreda and showed where the majority of the burden was related to mortality, morbidity, and other indicators pertinent through spatial analysis of 15 selected RMNCH indicators.
