Facility-level access to electricity and the efficiency of maternal and child health services

  • This project is the first known attempt to directly investigate whether facility level electrification improves the provision of maternal and child health services.
  • Rather than simply correlate electrification with levels of utilisations, we study the relationship between electrification and levels of efficiency in the provision of maternal and child health services.
  • In addition, we conduct stakeholder interviews to reveal the policy and operational challenges that Zambia is facing in planning and implementing the UN Sustainable Energy for All (SE4All) Agenda on women’s health.
