The Global Monitoring Platform in Maternal and Newborn Health aims to establish and sustain a multi-country network of health facilities providing childbirth services to measure and improve the quality of intrapartum and early postnatal care.
The Platform will conduct periodic, multi-country studies on intrapartum and early postnatal care in a network of health facilities across up to 10 low to middle income countries in the Asia-Pacific region. It will ultimately extend to include approximately 60 countries worldwide.
Data collection will commence in 2023 and aims to be conducted every 3 years until and beyond 2030. This will provide globally-representative data on intrapartum and early postnatal care in health facilities and health outcomes for the SDG era. The Platform will also support dissemination and training in evidence-based products, and drive research capacity strengthening at local and national levels.
