Rethinking Maternal and Newborn Health Services

In many low- and middle-income countries, women have been encouraged to deliver at the nearest health facility under the care of a skilled birth attendant. However, emerging evidence demonstrates that not all health facilities are equal in their capacity to respond to complications that occur around childbirth.

This discussion responds to the recommendation from the Lancet Global Health Commission on High Quality Health Systems that calls for the redesign of service delivery and prompts us to reexamine maternal and newborn care at the primary level.
