The MAISHA Quality of Maternal and Newborn Health Services study in Zanzibar, conducted in November–December 2010, was an observational study conducted in nine health facilities in Pemba and Unguja. The aim of the study, which combined observations of service delivery with inventories, record reviews and health worker knowledge assessments, was to provide strong information on the quality of maternal and newborn health care in these facilities, as an indication of current practice in maternal and newborn care in Zanzibar. The results serve as a baseline for the MAISHA program and as an important source of information on quality of maternal and newborn care for policymakers and stakeholders in Zanzibar.
