This study looked at the effectiveness of CHW projects in rural Kenya that aimed to promote better maternal newborn health knowledge and to increase deliveries under skilled attendance. Some pieces of information that were examined included: relevant demographic items, knowledge about maternal and newborn health, and whether a retrospective birth history of women’s children using oral interviews of women were subject to CHW health delivery messages. It was found that CHW delivery health messages increased the knowledge of maternal and newborn care for women in local communities, as well as encouraged deliveries under skilled attendance.
