“Cost-Effectiveness Study for the m4Change Project in Nigeria”
Funder: Pathfinder International

This project will assess the cost effectiveness of a mobile health device being used in 10 primary health care facilities in Nigeria by Pathfinder International to improve antenatal care for pregnant women. The team will assess the incremental costs associated with a potential increase in antenatal care visits as well as improvement in quality of care for women visiting the facilities over the period 2010-2014. The team will evaluate additional services including the provision of tetanus toxoid vaccination, malaria treatment, antenatal visits in the first trimester, and referrals for high risk cases.
