This research project was initiated in February 2011 in all 10 districts of Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK). The main objective of the research was to assess the social mobility of community midwives (CMWs) with reference to geographical and economic accessibility, social acceptability and relationship of these midwives with other care providers.
It was a mixed method research study conducted by the use of GIS mapping of all the CMWs in AJK. Qualitative research methods using in-depth interviews and focus group discussions were used in all 10 districts. A quantitative survey comprising of 400 households with 300 female and 100 male respondents was conducted in each district.
