- Internship available at CARE for Projet L’Espoir Pour La Santé Des Mères Et Nouveaux Nés (Project Hope). Projet Espoir aims to improve maternal health, with a specific focus on increased utilization of maternal health services during pregnancy, childbirth and post partum. It is testing interventions using a combination of improving the quality of care available at both the community and primary care levels, along with challenging social and cultural norms that inhibit women’s access to essential health services. Using a case / control design, Projet Espoir is aims to measure the added value of social change interventions to enhance maternal and newborn health. In one district (Bandiagara) the project is doing standard maternal health service strengthening interventions, including community mobilization around danger signs and birth planning. In the other district (Bankass) the project is ALSO adding interventions at the household, extended family, and community levels to challenge social and gender norms that inhibit women’s ability to access care. This research is testing the hypothesis that social change interventions will help to augment service utilization in areas with ongoing technical reproductive health interventions.
