A Scoping Review: Maternal and Newborn Health Interventions in Urban Slums in Sub-Saharan African


Download Resource

Population Services International (PSI) in partnership with Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) was awarded a four-year cooperative agreement from USAID for the Kampala Slums Maternal and Newborn Health (MaNe) implementation research project. The aim of the project was to design and test a health service delivery model to serve poor urban women and their babies living in slum communities of Lubaga and Makindye divisions in Kampala, Uganda.

To help inform the design of the MaNe project, the project team conducted a scoping review of the published literature on maternal and newborn health (MNH) interventions in urban slum settings in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). Key successes, failures and lessons learned from the interventions were identified. Synthesized findings from the scoping review are presented in this technical brief.
