Maternal and Child Health
Metrics details. To compare pre-intervention baseline in , post-intervention data were collected in Structured interviews were conducted with randomly selected mothers of children months of age in the four provinces. A focus group discussion among mothers in each of four provinces was conducted. The proportion of mothers who know the need for exclusive breastfeeding necessary during the initial six months significantly increased between pre- and post-interventions. The proportion of those practicing exclusive breastfeeding significantly increased between pre- and post-interventions, too.
Twenty-eight papers were obtained: 3 review articles, 17 original articles, 2 brief reports, 2 letters, 1 research note, and 3 proceedings. Thus, the MCHH is a unique tool in Japan that has influenced other countries to adopt similar programs. Subsequently, it has played an important role in health promotion for mothers and children throughout wartime, postwar, the confusion era, and revival period in Japan. Then big data will be available for medical cooperation and study. Therefore, the MCHH should be recognized as a traditional health tool from an era that lacked medical resources.
