B+ team reaches an important milestone

The Option B+ team achieved an important milestone today, reaching our goal of enrolling 200 clients in our cohort! This completes our study enrollment, but there is no shortage of work ahead. The team will continue to follow all 200 women, with a brief check-in after they have given birth, and completing follow-up surveys at 3, 6, and 12 months postpartum. The team will also continue to focus on the qualitative portion of the study, which involves completing interviews with a subset of 24 cohort participants at enrollment and again at 3 months postpartum. Will will also be reviewing medical record data to help us gain a comprehensive understanding of the implementation of Option B+ in the Kilimanjaro region. We are so appreciative of our hardworking team who have helped to make this happen, especially the study nurses in charge of enrolling participants and completing the study interviews.  We would also like to extend a heartfelt thanks to our participants, who are dedicating their time and energy to helping us understand and improve care engagement among pregnant and postpartum women.
