Volunteers in villages across 157 villages in southern Tanzania were trained in quality improvement—a means of problem solving to create and evaluate context-specific strategies to address local problems. These quality improvement processes were intended to improve health-seeking and household-level maternal and newborn health practices. The implementation of this intervention was evaluated using a process evaluation in a diverse sample of villages. The primary facilitators of this intervention, its unintended consequences, and other key learnings from this evaluation will be shared. Reflections on evaluating participatory interventions and the unique ethical considerations of these will also be highlighted.
