Where did you give birth to (NAME)?
If source is hospital, health center, or clinic, write the name of the place below. Probe to identify the type of source and circle the appropriate code.
The intent of this question is to identify births delivered in a health facility. If the woman gave birth in a hospital, health centre or clinic, write the name of the place in the space provided on the questionnaire. Ask whether the place is in the public (run by the government) or private sector. If the place is in the public sector, but is not one of the pre-coded choices, write the description in the space provided for 'Other public' and circle '26'. Similarly, if the place is in the private medical sector, but is not one of the pre-coded choices, write the description in the space provided for 'Other private medical' and circle '36'. If the respondent answers that she delivered in another place not listed, write the description of the place in the space provided for 'Other' and circle '96'. Then write the name of the place in the space provided on the questionnaire 'Name of place' and tell your supervisor. Your supervisor will learn from other people in the community whether the place is public or private and then circle the code corresponding to the response. Places that are not health facilities, other than home, should also be coded as 'Other' and described.
