Decentralization Works! Improving Antenatal Care (ANC) Utilization and Coverage of Essential Interventions in 368 Health Centers and Health Posts in Ethiopia

Maternal infection, anemia, and poor nutrition are important causes of low birthweight in newborns. The Enhancing Nutrition and Antenatal Infection Treatment for Maternal and Child Health project in Ethiopia aimed to increase newborn birthweight through improved utilization and quality of antenatal care (ANC) with a focus on early ANC enrollment and improved ANC nutrition counseling, anemia prevention, and point of care (POC) testing and management of maternal infections and anemia.

Steps for Operationalizing Global Guidance on Nutrition Interventions in Antenatal Care: Lessons Learned in Four Countries

A package of evidence-based scalable nutrition interventions is urgently needed in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). We aimed to document key steps and lessons learned in Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, and India for adapting and integrating nutrition interventions into antenatal care (ANC) based on the World Health Organization (WHO) 2016 guidelines.

Validation of Maternal Report of Iron Folic Acid Supplementation during Pregnancy in Rural Nepal

Measuring and tracking coverage of nutrition-related services provided during antenatal care (ANC) is important for improving evidence-based interventions. For many low-income countries, the Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) provide nationally representative data. However, it is unclear whether women can report accurately what services they received during pregnancy, often with a recall period of months to years.

Factors Affecting the Implementation of Calcium Supplementation Strategies during Pregnancy to Prevent Pre-eclampsia: A Mixed Methods Systematic Review

Hypertensive disorders of pregnancy are among the leading causes of maternal and neonatal morbidity and mortality globally. The World Health Organization recommends calcium-containing supplements daily from 20 weeks gestation for women at high risk of pre-eclampsia/eclampsia and for all women from populations with low calcium intake. This research aims to improve the understanding of factors (barriers and facilitators) influencing the uptake and use of calcium supplementation during pregnancy to prevent pre-eclampsia.
