From: Ancillary benefits of antenatal ultrasound: an association between the introduction of a low-cost ultrasound program and an increase in the numbers of women receiving recommended antenatal treatments

Figure 3

The rate of antenatal intervention (number of antenatal treatments per antenatal clinic visit) is shown before and after the introduction of the ultrasound program. Significant increases were seen in the proportion of women receiving anemia treatment, deworming treatment, and IPT 2. A slight but statistically significant decline was observed in the rate of IPT 1 administration. HIV testing was increased but not to the level of statistical significance.
