Programme Title: Accelerating Reduction in Maternal and Newborn Mortality in Bungoma county, Kenya 
 
Subject of Service Contract: Study to determine how to engage traditional birth attendants  
 
Duration of Service Contract: 18 months

1. Background and Context

1.1. Save the Children Signature Programmes: Save the Children aims to accelerate our progress towards achieving dramatic change for children over the next four years. To increase the impact of our current approach, we are developing a number of signature programmes. 

A signature programme is one which is designed to achieve breakthrough for children through the implementation of evidence based interventions that are replicable and scalable and that can generate positive results for children. 

These programmes will be used as beacons to attract more funding. The success of the signature programme is measured by the adoption of the successful intervention and replication to scale by government and other agencies. 

These programmes will demonstrate how Save the Children, in partnership with others, tackles issues that threaten children’s ability to survive, thrive and achieve their rights. We are developing innovative ways to ensure we have maximum impact so that children can directly benefit from large, high quality programmes on the ground. 

Critically, signature programmes will allow us to clearly demonstrate evidence of our successful impact, evidence that we will use to persuade others to replicate them on a mass scale, within a country and across continents.  We’ll also use this evidence to change the policies and practices of governments and other actors.

1.2. The Kenya Context: According to the 2008 Kenya Demographic and Health Survey (KDHS), only 44% of deliveries in Kenya are conducted by a skilled attendant with 28% being conducted by TBAs and 21% by relatives. 

Anecdotal information shows that the proportion of skilled attendance at delivery has increased to 66% since the onset of free maternity care in Kenya. 

However, there are still stark regional variations in skilled attendance with a higher proportion of pregnant women in the rural areas opting for TBA care as opposed to the urban areas. The KDHS showed that TBAs deliveries were more likely to occur in rural (30.4%) than urban areas (15.2%). 

A similar variation was evident depending on the geographic area ranging from 5.6% usage in Nairobi which is predominantly urban and 26-45% in the predominantly rural areas in the former Rift Valley and Western provinces. In the former North Eastern Province, 64% of all deliveries were conducted by TBAs

The policy on the use of TBAs in Kenya has followed the changes in global policy. Between 1970 and 1990, there was a push to train TBAs to increase their capacity in conducting deliveries.

In 1997, a technical consultation by the Safe Motherhood Interagency Group excluded TBAs from the definition of skilled birth attendants and this led to the withdrawal of support from training of TBAs and the change of focus to training of skilled attendants. 

The Kenya National Reproductive Health Policy (2009-2015) does not recognise TBAs a providers of skilled care and recommends that they should only be used as advocates of safe childbirth by encouraging women who seek their services to get care from a health facility and where possible, accompanying them to the facility. 

In Kenya, various programmes have engaged TBAs in maternal and newborn health in different ways each with varying outcomes.

2. Scope of Work: One of the interventions that the programme will implement is the use of TBAs to improve maternal and newborn health outcomes. 

The successful applicant will be responsible for the planning and execution of a study to determine the most appropriate and sustainable method of engaging TBAs.

  • Sustainability of the method of engagement
  • Relationship with the health system
