Lea Mimba Project Overview

In 2017, with funding by UK Aid from the British people, Management Sciences for Health (MSH) launched the Lea Mimba project to address gaps in the quality of antenatal care (ANC) and to support women’s and adolescents’ use of maternal and newborn health services in Kakamega County, Kenya. In partnership with the Kenya Progressive Nurses Association (KPNA), and in close collaboration with the County Health Management Team (CHMT), MSH is testing and evaluating a group ANC model—a pregnancy club—that provides a forum where pregnant women can share experiences, receive essential information from a midwife or other skilled provider, and track and better understand the progress of their pregnancies.
