As part of the UN Commission on Life-Saving Commodities for Women and Children, Anthrologica completed a seven-month qualitative study to assess perceptions and experiences of childhood illness; determine the barriers associated with seeking care for children under five; and identify local solutions to overcome barriers that promote and facilitate more timely access to appropriate healthcare.  A central component of the work was the co-production of knowledge with caregivers, increasing parental awareness and demand for services and focusing on motivation for positive parenting.  The research provided an evidence base for programming to accelerate progress towards the MDGs in three high priority countries.
