Formative Research

Formative Research aimed to determine the overall feasibility of MITS in the context of child mortality and pregnancy surveillance. By exploring specific cultural, religious, and socio-behavioral factors that may increase or decrease acceptability of MITS on children under five, as well as the care-seeking behaviors during pregnancy, labor and delivery, and in the new-born period, the formative research has been central in shaping CHAMPS’ research practices in Ethiopia.
