The DHS needs a question on whether the woman received oxytocin injection or misoprostol by mouth at the time of delivery.

If you need to drop a question I have my doubts about the usefulness of question 423 (did you take a drug for intestinal worms). Obviously if one is focused on anemia 423 would be important but receiving a prophylactic uterotonic to prevent postpartum hemorrhage is a major component of maternal health programs and should be collected. The other question that might be deleted would be 419 since it could be highly subject to recall bias. It would be useful to check the validity and reliability of answers to this.
