Approaches towards improving the quality of maternal and newborn health services in South Asia: challenges and opportunities for healthcare systems
South Asia is experiencing a dismal state of maternal and newborn health (MNH) as the region has been falling behind in reducing the levels of maternal and neonatal mortality. Most of the efforts are focused on enhancing coverage of MNH services; however, quality remains a serious concern if the region is to achieve expected outcomes in terms of standardised MNH services within healthcare delivery systems. This research consists of a review of south Asian quality improvement approaches/interventions, specifically implemented for MNH improvement.
