This survey was designed to complement and extend previous efforts at assessing quality and access to maternal and newborn care, with a particular focus on observations of providers during antenatal care and labor and delivery to assess the use of lifesaving interventions to prevent or manage common complications. The multi-country study objectives were to:

  • Guide program planning for improving quality of facility-based maternal and newborn care services in each country and at the global level;
  • Develop rapid and practical data collection tools and composite indicators; and
  • Provide baseline estimates and, when repeated, endline estimates where the survey is part of an evaluation of program interventions.
