Forum contributes to labour and childbirth toolkit released by the WHO

Ahmednur Ali, the Forum's scientific lead of Equity-Driven Evidence Support, is among a group of international experts who contributed to a toolkit recently published by the World Health Organization (WHO) that provides  guidance for care during and immediately after childbirth.

The toolkit provides detailed information and resources to close the gap between labour and postnatal care recommendations released by the WHO in 2018 and 2022, and current policies and practices.

“The toolkit addresses the multiple barriers to guideline implementation, beyond just knowledge and skills, with the aim of improving maternal, fetal, and newborn outcomes by ensuring that the recommendations are put into practice,” said Ali.
