- To synthesize the information available from the MCHIP- and USAID-funded qualitative research studies on the motivators and barriers, and current practices of maternal handwashing behavior in the perinatal period.
- To provide recommendations to practitioners seeking to develop and implement programs to promote handwashing to reduce neonatal mortality.
