Implementing the WHO Safe Childbirth Checklist: Webinar June 15!

To improve the quality of care that all women and babies receive at the time of childbirth, the World Health Organization (WHO) developed the Safe Childbirth Checklist, a set of evidence-based birth practices addressing major causes of maternal death, intrapartum-related stillbirths, and neonatal deaths, and accompanying Implementation Guide for birthing facilities. Scientists at Ariadne Labs, a collaboration between Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, have had a leading role in the development, testing, implementation and spread of the Checklist around the world.

Attend the webinar on June 15 to learn more about experts’ experience using the Checklist. Please find webinar details and access information below.
