This quality of care survey was conducted in March and April of 2010 to assess the care received by mothers and newborns during antenatal and delivery care. The survey was fielded in the 19 Ethiopian hospitals with the heaviest volume of deliveries. The primary objective of the survey was to determine the frequency and quality of interventions that address direct causes of maternal and neonatal deaths and to guide the need for and content of QOC improvement activities for maternal and newborn care at all hospital levels.
