PMA-Ethiopia, implemented in collaboration between Addis Ababa University, Ethiopian Public Health Association and Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, is designed to generate both cross-sectional and longitudinal data on a variety of reproductive, maternal, and newborn health indicators that can inform both national and regional governments. It is designed to respond to the need, highlighted in the 2016 Information Revolution Roadmap, to generate timely population-based data for decision making within Ethiopia.
PMA-Ethiopia builds upon the previous success of the Performance Monitoring and Accountability 2020 (PMA2020)/Ethiopia and the PMA Maternal and Newborn Health survey in SNNP region. PMA Ethiopia features an expanded topical scope, moving beyond family planning to also include maternal and newborn health indicators, expanding geographically to provide greater regional representation within the smallest regions, and an expansion of survey methodology to include both cross-sectional and longitudinal data collection.
