File Type .pdf | File Size 376.25 KB

The failure of many health services worldwide to deliver evidence-based prevention and treatment of postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) where and when women need care is a major quality problem for maternal health. This Health Care Improvement Project report describes how quality improvement approaches can accelerate scale-up of a high-impact intervention to reduce PPH: active management of the third stage of labor. The report describes how quality improvement efforts in Niger and Ecuador led to remarkable gains in national coverage of this life-saving intervention (2009, 4 pages).
