We track our work through a comprehensive mix of indicators that monitor and evaluate uptake, performance and impact. We conduct robust data analysis and assessment by developing and implementing paper-based and digital data reporting tools which capture real-time community, district and provincial maternal health data. We create and have captured indicators for the first time in Pakistan, such as on client-centered counseling, use of postpartum hemorrhage prevention methods, referrals and uptake of family planning services. Our aim is to strengthen data-driven policy making and to share our findings and lessons learnt for diverse stakeholders in Pakistan and abroad. To ensure this, we publish our project reports and regularly present at prominent national and international platforms.
We design paper-based reporting tools for communities with limited digital skills and connectivity to track acceptance, practice and impact of the taught techniques. Our trained skilled birth attendants report real-time monthly data on customized tracker tools in local languages which ensures high uptake and effective reporting. Alongside, we create tools such as checklists and conduct field visits and focus group discussions to assess performance and uptake of taught skills at primary healthcare facilities.
We designed and launched a novel SDSM digital reporting tool in the Urdu language for our trained skilled birth attendants to report monthly data in real-time on key maternal health indicators pertaining to pregnancies, deliveries, uptake of taught Postpartum Haemorrhage (PPH) prevention techniques, referrals and more. Through our versatile tool, we have created and launched standardised metrics for community and district level comparisons of key maternal health indicators.
