Management Information System Development

The project Safe Motherhood Initiative was funded by U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented by Management Science for Health (MSH) in partnership with Curatio International Foundation, Program for Appropriate Technology (PATH), and Emory University. The duration of the project was September 2000 – January 2003.

The Project consisted of four components: Management and Information system development; community mobilization and provider-client interactions; enhancement of maternal and perinatal clinical performance; STD/Anemia prevalence study.

In the frame of Safe Motherhood Initiative Project, a new Perinatal Surveillance system was developed by the American and Georgian experts. This system aimed to render critical data for regional (and facility) level decision-making and response planning, which the experts hoped would improve the quality of rendered services to the population. The system enabled decision makers to catch majority of the deliveries, which took place in Region (Rayon).
