A Systematic Review of the Interconnections between Maternal & Newborn Health
 

Poor maternal and newborn health is a significant contributor to the burden of disease in developing countries, with most maternal and newborn deaths caused by the poor health of the mother before or during pregnancy, or by poor quality care during and immediately after childbirth. In close collaboration with Aga Khan University, Family Care International undertook work highlighting the interconnections between maternal and newborn health and identifying common advocacy messages to promote investment in and implementation of evidence-based interventions found to be beneficial to both women and newborns.

Built on findings emerging from a systematic review of recent and on-going research of the impact of potential interventions on maternal and newborn outcomes,this set of advocacy materials for dissemination at key meeting and events includes:

  • An executive summary of the full research paper, for research/academic/medical audiences
  • A pocket card, for advocates and policymakers, incorporating the review findings and key messages

El segundo grupo de acciones tiene por objeto prevenir los resultados reproductivos adversos mediante la reducción de los abortos inseguros y el aumento del uso de atención calificada antes, durante, y después del parto.

The WHO guidelines on Preventing early pregnancy and poor reproductive outcomes among adolescents in developing countries have been translated into Spanish by FCI with funding from UNFPA and WHO. These guidelines focus on two sets of key actions that aim to reduce the number of adolescent pregnancies in developing countries. The first set of actions seeks to prevent early pregnancy by preventing marriage before 18 years of age, increasing knowledge and understanding the importance of pregnancy prevention, increasing the use of contraception and preventing coerced sex. The second set of actions seeks to prevent poor reproductive outcomes by reducing unsafe abortions and by increasing the use of skilled antenatal, childbirth and postnatal care.
