Hello,

Do you have any information as to how the facilities and women were sampled for direct observation of delivery in the Kenya 2010 SPA and Malawi 2013-14 SPA? The reports do not include any information on the sampling for the delivery observations, only for the other observations and exit interviews performed.

Thank you,
Stephanie

For 2013-2014 Malawi SPA:

- Sampling of facilities: The 2013-14 MSPA was designed to be a census of all formal-sector health facilities in Malawi. Master Facility List of 1,060 such facilities, 997 facilities were successfully surveyed = (92%)
- Sampling of observed normal delivery clients: Total number of normal delivery clients present on the day of the assessment (476), Actual number of normal delivery clients observed (474) = (100%)

For Kenya 2010 SPA:
- Sampling of facilities: The 2010 KSPA was designed to be a sample of formal-sector health facilities in Kenya. Master Facility List of 6,192, 703 facilities were selected for 2010 KSPA and 695 facilities were successfully surveyed (99%)

Please, would you help me in sampling health facilities for a research project? I wanted to conduct a research for my Masters in Public Health and I got difficulty in sampling facilities! I am going to conduct multistage sampling technique (From disrticts,and then health facilities). Hope you will get me the direction!
