      Global Maternal Health Conference 2013 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.

          Global Maternal Health Conference 2013 This session began with Beattie describing work with EngenderHealth in Bangladesh, Guinea, Niger, Nigeria and Uganda. She and her colleagues gathered data about fistula by documenting women's experiences with labor and delivery, as well as characteristics of the women themselves to learn about trends and commonalities within the group. Findings included that more messages prior to delivery were needed about warning signs around labor as well as better follow-up instruction and care. Traore presented work in Mali which addressed family planning and fistula services which previously had not been brought together. The post-fistula program not only saw an increase in participants to seek supportive services, but over 70% of participants left the hospital with a planned contraceptive method. Mamane described work in Niger which used a program where community members identified, counseled and referred pregnant women. Included in training was awareness-raising on fistula. Over 90% of participants sought ANC services, trumping the national average of 26%. Asaba explained a program in Uganda where the goal was to increase the use of the partograph and make sure use was ongoing. Their program allowed them to realize that before consistent and proper use of the partograph is achieved, other parts of the system need to be fixed (including supplies for measurement) so that the partograph can and will be used in a reliable manner.

              Global Maternal Health Conference 2013 This session focused on pre-eclampsia and eclampsia and the barriers surrounding this issue. Payne began the session by describing the a study using miniPIERS risk prediction model to identify women in low and middle income countries who are more likely to have high risk pregnancies. This study will be used in the future to help communities better address warning signs, as well as it will be integrated into mHealth programs. Oladapo described how OBs have viewed the new WHO recommendations on the treatment and prevention of pre-eclampsia and eclampsia. He found through targeted questionnaires that barriers were felt by the OBs in terms of the cost of intervention, the ability of patients, and resource strains on the system. He suggested by targeting the barriers, the OBs would better be able to follow and assuage their worries of the WHO recommendations. Aryal gave a presentation on the work that Nepal is doing in regards to pre-eclampsia and eclampsia in regards to prevention, detection/screening, and management. The work they have done since 2006 has shown marked improvements given their assessments in 2011. She noted that work continues in Nepal, including a calcium distribution program with Jhpiego.

                      Global Maternal Health Conference 2013 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.
