Uncovering quality of maternal and newborn care: numbers and voices from three studies in sub-Saharan Africa

Dr Mamuda Aminu, Fiona Dickinson and Dr Florence Mgawadere from the Centre for Maternal and Newborn Health (CMNH) at LSTM will present their research on Quality of Care in sub-Saharan Africa.

Each will present a study which highlights a different perspective on the quality of maternal and newborn healthcare; they will share findings from the viewpoint of researchers, women and healthcare providers. They will particularly focus on quality of care around time of birth, using data collected in healthcare facilities in Kenya, Malawi, Sierra Leone and Zimbabwe.
