The quality of care a woman receives during pregnancy, delivery and postpartum affects her health, the health of her child and the likelihood that she will seek health care in the future. Continuing the global dialogue on quality of maternal health care is crucial to answer some of the most pressing questions:
- What are the best strategies for accurately measuring quality of maternal health care?
- In what ways might high quality care look different across diverse sociocultural settings?
- How does the World Health Organization definition of quality of care compare to the real-life experiences of women receiving maternity care services?
- What kind of programs, policy changes and other interventions are most effective for improving quality?
The Maternal Health Task Force (MHTF) strives to ensure that the global maternal health community is well-informed and equipped to tackle these challenges and work together to improve the health and wellbeing of women, mothers and newborns around the globe.
