AbstractA statement of the basic principles of maternal care formulated by a joint WHO/UNICEF committee. The statement takes its force from the important, yet inadequately appreciated, impact that the health and nutritional status of pregnant women and the quality of care during pregnancy and delivery can have on rates of infant death. The booklet first considers the causes of neonatal and perinatal mortality and the main factors involved. The next section provides a listing and brief description of interventions that use the principles of primary health care to reduce perinatal and neonatal mortality. All proposed strategies are cost-effective, feasible, and known to create both immediate and long-term improvements

In Africa, most of the causes of maternal, newborn and under-five deaths can be prevented with the existing cost-effective interventions.

Mothers and children continue to die due to the triple delays in seeking appropriate care, reaching the health facility and receiving the appropriate management at the facility. 2. Lessons from maternal, newborn and child health (MNCH) services show that community empowerment, participation and ownership ...
