Women's Health and Pregnancy Outcomes: Does Access to Services Make a Difference?
Elizabeth Frankenberg and
Duncan Thomas ()
Working Papers from RAND Corporation Publications Department
The question of how access to services affects health outcomes is critical for policy makers allocating resources across different programs, but it is difficult to answer with cross-sectional data sets. The authors use data from a panel survey in Indonesia (the Indonesia Family Life Survey) that spans a period of a major expansion in access to midwifery services to investigate whether the expansion resulted in improved health and pregnancy outcomes for women of reproductive age.
