What are the levels of impact in the health service ecosystem?

May 30, 2014

What are the different levels that impact maternal health services provision? As a part of M4ID’s ongoing research project – Better Outcomes in Labor Difficulty / BOLD – we aim to understand the various barriers in the demand and provision of care for pregnant woman, the community and the facility alike, and thus, we are mapping out the different layers where interventions could have the most impact.

As the above diagram indicates, potential impact of interventions and solutions widen with the increasing radius, at the same time addressing systemic and process barriers becomes much more complex.  We’ll need to take all these issues in to account as we move from research to identifying the most effective solutions for BOLD.
