H10. Emergency Transport Scheme – Health Condition Assessment tools
These tools are to be used to determine the effect of the use of a particular mode of transport has on the health status of women on arrival at a facility for maternal health care versus those arriving via other modes of transport. The data collected also indicates health seeking behaviours and economic status.
They have been used in the five year Emergency Transport Scheme (ETS) project which ended in 2018 and aimed to contribute to reducing maternal mortality in Adamawa State, Northern Nigeria. The project partnered with the National Union of Road Transport Workers’ (NURTW) commercial taxi drivers who were trained to provide an affordable, accessible, safe and timely emergency transport service for pregnant women in labour or for those experiencing complications during their pregnancy.
