In a household survey, authors found less than one in four women in Morogoro, Tanzania reported having visited a health facility for postnatal care. Individual-level attributes for postnatal care use were mothers achieving primary education or higher, having had a cesarean section or forceps delivery, and being counseled by a community health worker to go for postnatal care at a health facility. Measurement and understanding of individual and community-level factors allow for better targeting and selection of communities for health system strengthening activities.
