The Toolkit is based on Monitoring emergency obstetric care: a handbook (The Handbook), which was published by the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), the United Nations Children’s Fund UNICEF, and AMDD in June 2009 as a revision of the 1997 Guidelines for Monitoring the Availability and Use of Obstetric Services.  The Handbook lays out a methodology for monitoring the functioning of the health system in providing EmOC, using a set of EmOC indicators to determine availability, use, and quality of this care. The EmONC Needs Assessment conducted with this Toolkit collects the data needed to calculate the EmOC Indicators as well as detailed data needed to plan for the improvement of EmONC services.
