Innovation Description

In Kenya the 4th ANC access and skilled delivery stands at 58% and 61% respectively while Narok County is at 46% and 38.6% (KDHs 2014). Narok County also has the highest number of teenage pregnancy at 40% while nationally it is 18%. The girls give birth at home via the Traditional Birth Attendants (TBA) and not accessing skilled delivery ANC services due to stigma and ignorance concerning RMNCH services. These contribute to the high maternal morbidity and mortality, neonatal deaths in Kenya
