Provision of Care
WHO’s framework for improving quality of care for women and newborns around the time of childbirth encompasses the provision and experience of care and key health system functions necessary to achieve quality health care. This set of resources is related to provision of care and addresses the quality of MNH care broadly and overall. It also focuses on evidence-based practices for routine care and management of complications.
This page includes a curated list of select resources presenting key evidence on quality of care during labor and birth, the impact of poor quality MNH care, the effectiveness of strategies to improve quality of care, and a report on progress – with additional resources to be added on an ongoing basis.
