Evaluating the impact of Kenya Mentor Mother Program on the health and psycho-social wellbeing of pregnant women and new mothers in Kenya and determining the cost-benefit of scaling the program.
National AIDS and STI Control Program (NASCOP) with support from m2m is commissioning a full economic evaluation of Kenya Mentor Mother Program psycho-social support services in Kenya.
The purpose of the evaluation is to empirically investigate the cost, significance and contribution of KMMP’s structured peer education and psycho-social support services for MNCH clients with a view towards informing decision-making and managing national scale-up – with special reference to PMTCT.
This economic evaluation will build on an external evaluation of the health outcomes and impact, as well as the psycho-social wellbeing outcomes and impact, associated with Kenya Mentor Mother Program’s work in Kenya as part of the same scope of work.
