Global Maternal Health Conference 2013
Barriers for skilled birth attendance vary greatly between countries and programs. Browning described work in Ethiopia pairing traditional birth attendants (TBA) with community health workers. Shukla reported that higher quality training for skilled birth attendants (SBA) and improved supply systems increased health care facility delivery rates and overall morbidity outcomes in Jharkhand state, India. Perkins and Fyon discussed how use of participatory community assessments in Burkina Faso produced the findings that knowledge, rights, and satisfaction with services were barriers to accessing maternal health care. Melberg's work also in Burkina Faso explored the capability of primary health care settings to provide quality birth care. Hossain presented on the informal health practices and practitioners in slum areas of Bangladesh.
