Anthrologica - Anthropology of Global Health

Save the Children UK


Save the Children UK (SC UK) has worked in Ethiopia since 1984, and in South Wollo, Amhara Region, has recently scaled up their Maternal Newborn and Child Health (MNCH) interventions across five woredas. Despite advances in delivery, access and uptake, MNCH services continue to be under utilised.

Anthrologica was commissioned by SC UK in Ethiopia, to conduct a qualitative project to: provide a better understanding of maternal health seeking behaviour in relation to the socio-cultural environment in Amhara; to identify and assess factors (including gender) contributing to the low uptake of maternal health services; and to make strategic recommendations concerning MNCH interventions in Ethiopia. The final report is being utilised as an evidence-based advocacy tool for the Ethiopian Ministry of Health.
