Evaluation of a Red Cross maternal and child health (MCH) intervention in Honduras

Details

The Canadian Red Cross (CRC) and the Honduran Red Cross (HRC) ran a five year CIDA-funded community health project, called “REDES” (“Networks”). The objective was to improve the health of vulnerable populations in rural communities of the departments of Copán and Santa Bárbara, Honduras. The organizations worked to strengthen maternal and child health services, specifically to reduce maternal, newborn and child mortality and morbidity.

The HRC carried out extensive monitoring throughout the project, including baseline and end line surveys. In order to determine the impact of the REDES project, HealthBridge partnered with the CRC to analyse the available data, demonstrate the magnitude of changes in key indicators, and disseminate the findings in a scientific paper.
