The complex challenge of providing patient-centred perinatal healthcare in rural Uganda:A qualitative enquiry

Increasing research and reflections on quality of healthcare across the perinatal period slowly propels the global community to lobby for improved standards of quality perinatal healthcare, especially in low-and- middle- income countries. 

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.
