The study will be implemented in two agrarian and two pastoralist woredas. We propose to conduct a formative research to establish a baseline and inform contextual adaptation of the community-based delivery of interventions and subsequent implementation research, including process and end-line evaluation to measure implementation intensity and effectiveness of implementation strategies on implementation outcomes.  The effectiveness of the implementation strategies in improving maternal and newborn health outcomes will be monitored and evaluated using the RE-AIM (reach, effectiveness, adoption, implementation, maintenance) framework and Consolidated Framework for Implementation research (CFIR).
