The Safe Motherhood Applied Research and Training (SMART) project was conceived as an operations research project designed to test the effectiveness of two different strategies for improving maternal and neonatal health in Pakistan. To evaluate the results of this test, several types of evaluative research were conducted, including qualitative studies of various types, health systems assessments, evaluations of specific components, and household surveys. The household surveys are the subject of this report, which is Report 3 (Changes in knowledge and behavior of women and families) in a series of six. The surveys are two types: a large-scale, before-after household survey (HHS) intended to measure mortality change as well as some other socioeconomic, demographic, and health variables; and a smaller knowledge, attitude and behavior (KAB) survey conducted at baseline, mid-project, and endline and intended to obtain details on behavior and on exposure to SMART project activities.
