    Comprehensive Emergency Obstetric Care (CeMOC) is a leading part of the reduction of maternal mortality. This panel highlighted the targeted work in Tanzania which including training of non-doctors at health clinics for emergency events, including surgery. Non-physicians, assistant medical officers, nurse-midwives and clinical officers managed these clinics, as CeMOC was rolled out in an effort to decentralize from referral hospitals. Results after 18 months included a 30% reduction in MMR, and a 42% reduction in referring women to upper level hospitals.

    This session started with Kumar's work in India using Standards Based Management and Recognition to address the growing need within health facilities due to an increased usage in maternal health services. The program had many successes including the ability for hospitals to self-motivate based on the self-assessment approach and how it provided a framework for supportive supervision and infrastructural/HR improvements. Akter's presentation focused on Bangladesh where they used a pay-for-performance approach to achieve pre-determined performance targets with a quality assurance system to measure performance. The pay-for-performance method produced fantastic results, including increased quality of care scores especially for MNCH. Tripathi explained the work revolving around P-QoC, Process Quality of Care in regards to labor and delivery quality of care. Her work included finding the key dimensions of labor and delivery care, the indicators of those dimensions, and finally a scale to measure QoC given these determinants. Once finalized this tool will be used within the clinic setting by managers and key stakeholders, as well as via rapid surveys and health services research. Chaturvedi presented on how to make sure the effectiveness of the referral system in providing successful EmOC in one district of Madhya Pradesh province in India. Results found that the referral systems were not working as expected in the area, despite the increase of actual EmOC patients. Murdock described the traditional birth attendants in 8 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. Murdock's rapid assessment provided only select information on certain indicators, but suggested a number of ways forward including periodic testing of provider competency, update clinical guidelines, and provide better supervision for students.

    This session on cesarean sections (CS) in Burkina Faso is spoken in French with English Power Point presentations. Strategies for improving access and quality of CS were shared including the use of a "quality caesarean section analysis framework” with five pillars (access, indication, technical procedure, post-surgery, long term follow-up), an in-depth analysis of subsidization of direct cost of deliveries and emergency care, assessments of quality of care and EmOC accessibility, and the analysis of women's perceptions of CS post-operation.
