Summary 

This dataset contains estimates of maternal and child health (MCH) indicators in Uganda at the regional and national levels. These estimates were produced by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) and the Infectious Diseases Research Collaboration (IDRC) by using multiple data sources and applying complex modeling approaches. Trend estimates in this dataset include under-5 mortality, indicators of childhood nutrition (prevalence of underweight and stunting among children under 5), and a range of MCH interventions including malaria control, childhood immunizations, and other key MCH interventions such as antenatal care, skilled birth attendance, and exclusive breastfeeding. Regional estimates for a number of socio-economic indicators, including women’s educational attainment and household characteristics, are also available.
