This included documenting changes in fertility rate, changes in mortality rates for neonates, infants, children and under-five, family planning, maternal health, newborn care practices, child health status, and maternal and child nutrition. Additionally information on knowledge about services provided by Female Community Health Volunteers, maternal incentive scheme and the free health policy were also included. The survey was conducted in 40 districts, which included 20 Core Program Districts of NFHP II and 20 control districts. As the NFHP has focus on the rural areas, all the survey clusters were rural. These clusters were same as that selected for the 2006 Nepal Demographic and Health Survey as the findings from the rural clusters of NDHS 2006 was treated as the baseline for monitoring the changes. The study area spread over 111 rural clusters whereby a total of 3,932 households were enumerated. Overall, 5,019 women age 15-49 were interviewed.
