0 0 /5
INTRODUCTION Provision of safe Obstetric care in resource challenged LMIC settings is a challenge. World Health Organization (WHO) introduced the Safe Childbirth Checklist (SCC) as a four-page, organized list of evidence-based 28 essential birth practices, targeting the major causes of maternal morbidity and mortality, intrapartum-related stillbirths and neonatal deaths that occur in health-care facilities around the world. The purpose of this project was to adopt and adapt the WHO Safe Childbirth Checklist to raise the quality of Obstetric care provided at the hospital.
