We propose an innovative intervention in Tanzania and Uganda to improve maternal and new-born health with an expanded health system quality management approach that links communities and facilities using locally generated data. Cost and community effectiveness of this intervention will be estimated with population and facility-level indicators. Changes in contextual factors will be carefully documented to enhance our understanding of how health improvements were achieved. The impact on mortality will be modelled using the Lives Saved Tool. Furthermore, the intervention could serve as a more general model for scaling-up quality management of other health interventions in low-resource settings.
