After increasing the percentage of hospital births of pregnant women from 26% to 96% I am very excited to see what comes of this latest LCA initiative! In addition to tracking children's health I would be very interested to know what information is being gathered on the mothers. For example, some studies suggest that women's self-reported agency (their belief that they can achieve their goals and strive for the future they desire) has tremendous impact on their reproductive health, which, in turn, could have a significant effect on child mortality. By creating these data points and coupling it with the recurrent household surveys, LCA is really blazing a trail and paving the road for some amazing policy work. Hats off!
