Methodology
  • Data were collected from a national sample of 119 MWHs in Liberia established between 2010-2018. The study used a mixed method design that included focus group discussions, individual interviews, logbook reviews, and geographic information systems. Additionally, each MWH was geo-located for purposes of geo-visualization.
Description
  • This study used a convergent parallel mixed methods design that included qualitative data in the form of focus group discussions (FGDs), individual interviews, quantitative data retrieved from logbook reviews, and geo-location data collected through geographic information systems (GIS). Focus group discussions were conducted with community members, including chiefs, community leaders, women of reproductive age, traditional birth attendants (TBAs), women currently staying at a MWH, and male partners. Individual interviews were conducted with healthcare providers (midwives, registered nurses, and officers in charge) providing services at the rural primary healthcare facilities associated with a MWH. Logbook registries at rural health facilities with a MWH were reviewed to capture MWH usage. Additionally, each MWH was geo-located for purposes of geo-visualization.
