Addressing PPH requires a consideration of the broader context, spanning commodities, referral, metrics/data, human resources, financing, policy/governance, service delivery quality, infrastructure, community education/outreach and socio-cultural dynamics. Despite varying levels of health system development in the two APPHC target countries, different proportions of facility delivery (44% Madagascar, 90% in Malawi) and dissimilar socio-cultural and political contexts, findings from the scoping exercise and stakeholder consultations identified similar types of challenges in both countries. The set of activities were identified through a consultative process and are adapted to leverage existing opportunities and the evolving public health landscape.
The APPHC effort uses a partnered implementation science approach to ensure research, documentation and data analysis activities generate evidence directly applicable to post-partum hemorrhage related policy and program needs in Malawi, Madagascar (and beyond).
