Global Maternal Health Conference 2013

Filippi first described her study in Benin and Morocco which focused on c-sections and the care surrounding non-vaginal delivery births. The information presented was preliminary , but showed those steps that were not taken properly during labor, including elapsed time for decision making to move to a c-section. The study used existing data from hospital records and provided a new way of learning about near-misses and missed opportunities. Kulkarni focused on the CHWs working in Navi Mumbai, India, a slum area. The aim of the study was to create greater use of maternal health facilities. They found with increased visits women sought out more skilled care and also with better coverage of the CHWs, there were more appropriate referrals and better reporting.
Zalazar's session was omitted.
