In Bihar, India, coverage of essential health and nutrition interventions is low. These interventions are provided by 2 national programs - the Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS) and Health/National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) - through Anganwadi workers (AWWs) and Accredited Social Health Activists (ASHAs), respectively. Little is known, however, about factors that predict effective service delivery by these frontline workers (FLWs) or receipt of services by households. This study examined the predictors of use of 4 services: (1) immunization information and services, (2) food supplements, (3) pregnancy care information, and (4) general nutrition information.
