NEPAL - NEPAL MULTIPLE INDICATOR SURVEILLANCE 1997, FIFTH CYCLE

January 10, 2018

ABSTRACT This fifth cycle of the NMIS focuses on care for women during pregnancy and delivery and the relationship between this and the outcome of pregnancy, in terms of estimates of low birth weight and survival of the baby. It is timely in view of the recent publication of the National Maternity Care Guidelines for Nepal. It is intended to provide information on the current situation in relation to the targets set in the guidelines and some insights about what might help to improve matters, for use by service planners and providers at national and local levels. No attempt was made to estimate maternal mortality. Estimates of maternal mortality in Nepal are available from other sources. The NMIS employs Sentinel Community Surveillance (SCS). Features of this method include: the focus of each cycle on a small group of issues; the combination of quantitative and qualitative data from the same communities in a meso-analysis; data analysis and risk analysis to produce results in a form useful for planning; revisiting of the same sites, making estimation of impact of interventions easier.
