I support this recommendation, particularly with regards to improving the measurement of antenatal care quality, beyond coverage.

I see Indicator 4 on receipt of food or cash assistance being especially relevant in countries with large-scale conditional cash transfers (CCT) programs. It is my understanding that ENDES (Peru DHS) captures such data in relation to the JUNTOS CCT, although it is not specifically asked in the context of pregnancy. In some CCT programs, antenatal care contacts could be a "condition" met for receiving the cash or food, therefore it may also be valuable to capture this additional information for programmatic purposes.
