IMPROVING HEALTH SERVICES AROUND THE TIME OF CHILDBIRTH IN PLACES WHERE DEATH RATES ARE HIGH AND HOME-BIRTHS COMMON
Grant number: 1075065 | Funding period: 2014 - 2017
In settings close to Australia where death rates among mothers and newborns remain high, it is common for childbirth to take place outside of health facilities. This research will develop feasible options for countries aiming to simultaneously improve care in first-line health facilities (which often takes some years), and simultaneously provide some limited services in the home that can reduce deaths immediately.
