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

Abstract: 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.
