Costs of Healthy Baby Voucher Program Services
The SHOPS project implemented the Healthy Baby Voucher Program in Uganda from 2012 to 2014, as part of the Saving Mothers Giving Life Initiative. Marie Stopes International, a SHOPS partner, served as the voucher management agency, working through its local affiliate, Marie Stopes Uganda. The goal of the program was to increase access to affordable, comprehensive maternal health services while improving the quality of obstetric care. Nearly 37,000 women purchased vouchers, redeeming 96 percent of them for at least one service.
