Development of a National Routine Reporting System for Kangaroo Mother Care (KMC) Services in Malawian Health Facilities

Presenter: Richard Luhanga, Save the Children

Malawi has been implementing KMC at health facilities for many years, however routine service data are limited and of poor quality due to the lack of a national system of standardized indicators, registers and reports. Save the Children supported the Malawi Reproductive Health Directorate and Central Monitoring and Evaluation Department to develop and pilot a simplified, user-friendly KMC register and reporting tool and customize indicators and reports in DHIS2. This marketplace will showcase the revised indicators and tools and explain the processes and stages taken to develop, pilot and roll-out a national routine reporting system for facility-KMC in Malawi.
