    Maternal and newborn morbidities are studied in various ways. Walker's use of a cluster randomized trial in Guatemala measured the impact of morbidity with interventions of training, social media marketing and liaison roles for midwives. Sawchuck's use of a miniMatrix to identify the impact of maternal morbidity. The miniMatrix will fulfill unmet need, streamline future programming and optimize resource allocation. In Kenya, Kagema found inadequate supplies and resources, gaps in knowledge and skills, and capacity for newborn care and emergency CEMoC were all contributors to morbidity. Sultana presented on uterine prolapse in Bangladesh, finding that referral mechanisms and emergency complication capabilities were lacking. Adler used a series of population based studies to find the overall burden and range of obstruction and prolonged labor.

    Quality of care may be assessed by various measures. Partners In Health's work in Lesotho trained 550 women to become clinic-affiliated health workers. Results included follow-up of 100% of pregnant women and constant monitoring of services at every delivery point. Population Council's work described the population based indicators for assessment of labor, delivery and post-partum periods. Future validation studies will be implemented to test these indicators. In the DRC, Myer described the Tanahashi method of quality monitoring for long-term improvements and to catch gaps in care. Bailey described the Quality of Institutional Care program which used evidence to improve efficiency and action via a scale-able, low-resource, real-time and simple monitoring system.

    Respectful care includes the rights of women during childbirth. Abuya discussed the disrespect and abuse (D&A) from a cross-sectional survey of women in Kenya, finding that there was normalization of D&A, and that its prevalence was varied in manifestation. In South Africa, Penn-Kekana studied urban and rural health facilities. Results included that insufficient staffing was not associated with D&A. Freedman discussed the definition of D&A and its definition in regards to respectful care. Developing a framework of D&A provides the ability to measure, understand, and address the issue. In Tanzania, Kujawski studied D&A by way of exit interviews, community follow-up and ward observation.
