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).

APPHC Portfolio of Activities

The evidence generation activities depicted in the graphic are currently underway and are explained in greater detail on the Malawi and Madagascar pages.  Each country has a set of activities tailored to the stakeholder response and opportunities in each country.  While the intention is for broad cross-country learning, in particular, the implementation research activities surrounding health provider burnout/psychosocial distress and mentorship models are aspects of both country activity portfolios, which will allow for particularly rich cross-context learning.
