The Mothers and their Children’s Healthcare Experience Study (MatCHES) will generate the evidence and co-develop the outputs needed to guide a more tailored, collaborative, and integrated approach to preventive healthcare, from before conception through early childhood.
This study collects new data on the experience of preventive healthcare by mothers and children, from before conception, through pregnancy and early childhood. This will generate the new knowledge needed to address issues with the effectiveness and delivery of current maternal and child preventive care. In collaboration with doctors, nurses, and the community, the study will make detailed recommendations to improve preventive healthcare, including for disadvantaged women and children.
