Region: Africa Scientific publication Empowering and engaging people and communities, Creating an enabling environment Source: Social Science & Medicine

The purpose of this qualitative study was to obtain a deeper understanding of how interpersonal dimensions of the quality of care relate to real-life experiences of perinatal care, in a resource-contrained local health system.
