Impact evaluation baseline report : maternal health and nutrition (English)

The government of The Gambia is implementing the Maternal and Child Nutrition and Health Results Project (MCNHRP) to increase the use of community nutrition and primary maternal and child health services. In collaboration with the government, the World Bank is conducting an impact evaluation to assess the project’s impact on key aspects of maternal and child nutrition and health. The MCNHRP baseline evaluation was conducted between November 2014 and February 2015. Quantitative and qualitative data were collected on three regions: Central River Region (CRR), North Bank Region-West (NBR-W), and Upper River Region (URR). Its purpose was to establish a baseline against which project performance will be assessed in the future. This technical brief summarizes the baseline report findings related to maternal health and nutrition.
