1. 16 January 2013 | Global Maternal Health Conference 2013, Arusha, Tanzania

    This session focused on the quality of care and uptake of services for maternal and newborn health with special interest in effective care for HIV services. The panel discussed issues surrounding not only the quality of care factors, but how to make sure implementation of programs were effective, how they should be implemented, what types of programs were successful in the past, and what are the future implications. These questions revolved around a study in Tanzania which asked, "Could the health system quality improvement strategy originally developed for HIV programs be adapted to improve the quality and uptake of MNH services?"

    Examples of ANC services are an integral part of reducing maternal mortality. Tamang described an innovative program using floating ANC clinics (15 boats) to reach those women in the Assam area of India. In Nigeria, Ijadunola described a pilot program that provided fewer, but more client-focused ANC visits. Chibehe described ANC clinics in Tanzania and care they provided. She found that testing and counseling for a variety of measures needed to be strengthened. Keya reported on how the national nutrition program in Bangladesh increased the uptake of the ANC program, but that the ANC programs themselves needed to improve supplies and quality of care.

    Moderator: Scholastica Chibehe, Jhpiego Tanzania

  4. 15 January 2013 | Global Maternal Health Conference 2013, Arusha, Tanzania

    This panel discussed the intersection of HIV/AIDS and pregnancy related mortality and its often overlooked role in maternal health. Ronsmans and Calvert's research brought about the conclusion that 4% of maternal deaths in Sub-Saharan Africa are related to HIV+ persons and that HIV+ women are 8 times more likely to die than HIV uninfected women (from a study in Europe, Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa and North America). These numbers come from literature reviews of attributable HIV related pregnancy related deaths. These numbers are extrapolated to consider population information, allowing for estimates of maternal deaths due to being HIV+. Ronsmans also found that access to PMTCT and ANC services need further bolstering as economics, distance and stigma still keep them at bay from many who need it. Zaba's presentation also discussed the high presence of maternal mortality amongst HIV+ pregnant women as compared to HIV uninfected women, and how the recording of HIV+ maternal deaths can be a confusing factor when recording reason of death. Gourley shared her research on PMTCT uptake in Tanzania and possible factors as to why there is such low-uptake. Multiple barriers were found, including economic hardships, distance from services, lack of disclosure to partners for fear of repercussions, and lack of materials at the clinic. Say's presentation focused on the definition of maternal mortality and how the ICD classifies maternal deaths, noting the importance of classifying each and every death as HIV+ or HIV- so as to not further complicate the definition of 'underlying cause' and 'contributory conditions'.

    Improving the quality of care for HIV positive women can be measured in a variety of different ways. The first 20 minutes of the video has bad audio quality. Mitchell's presentation skips immediately to results that key quality indicators monitoring patient retention, TB screening, clinical monitoring for ART toxicity, and CD4 monitoring did not have an effect on maternal mortality. Sando described the difference between Option A versus Option B and the performance level and feasibility of each option. Ngarina's work in Tanzania on the Mitra Plus PMTCT study showed gain in 2 years maternal survival as compared to short-term ART. Kiwelu focused on female bar and hotel workers in Moshi, Tanzania with high HIV-1 infection rates and multiple subtypes co-circulating within this population.
