Quality of Care for Prevention and Management of Common Maternal and Newborn Complications: Findings from a National Health Facility Survey in Rwanda

Publish Date: March 2012
Author: MCHIP
Language: English

This survey augments the existing literature on maternal and newborn health in Rwanda by including both knowledge tests and direct observation of care against standard checklists in both antenatal care and labor and delivery care, rather than collecting data through routine household surveys.

The purpose of the survey is to generate information to quantify the need for and guide the content of quality improvement activities for maternal and newborn care at facility, district, and national levels in Rwanda. This was achieved through documentation of the appropriate use, quality of implementation, and barriers to performance of key preventive, screening and treatment interventions during facility-based maternal and newborn care.
