Policy outcome
• CBDDM is now part of the Integrated Refresher Training
for the HEWs
Lessons learned: CBDDM
• Drivers of adopting CBDDM as the national strategy
– Aligned with national priority—community engagement & pregnancy care
– The national HDA strategy needed a focused approach
– Aligned with HEW work flow
– Field visit by policy makers—strategy appeared doable and promising
– Participation in national level working groups
– Demonstrability of credible evidence
– Recognition and trust
– Donor support
Lessons learned: PCQI
• Community participation and empowerment can
strengthen the performance of health systems
• Demand to ensure quality of services at health centres
• Communities can be an integral part of quality
improvement strategies
Lessons learned: Referral Solutions
• Stakeholders’ ownership of problems and proposed
solution
• Engaging stakeholders across each level of the referral
system created an awareness of the challenges and a
greater sense of commitment to jointly address them
• Consultative and monthly and quarter review meetings
created a platform for building relationships across each
level of the referral system
