National Programs for the Prevention and Management of Postpartum Hemorrhage and Pre-Eclampsia/Eclampsia: A Global Survey*, 2012

Publish Date: August 2012
Language: English

MCHIP undertook its second annual survey of national programs for the management of postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) and pre-eclampsia/eclampsia (PE/E) from January to March 2012. This country-level program analysis included countries from Africa, Asia and Latin America, focusing on those USAID priority countries that face the highest burden of maternal morbidity. The purpose of the review was to understand the status of national programs and to monitor their progress. Previously, the same survey was conducted from January to March 2011, allowing for comparison between 2011 and 2012.

The report includes a description of the methods, data and analysis—including comparisons of the 2011 and 2012 status for 31 countries. The full version of the report contains the appendices, which include the original blank survey in English, French and Spanish, the specific survey responses from 37 countries, and completed scale-up maps. In addition, this year’s report looks at service delivery guidelines and essential medicines lists from a smaller subset of countries.
