Accelerating the Spread of Best Practices in Postpartum Care: Scaling-Up Best Practices in Yemen
This paper shows how Yemen's Al Saba'een Hospital became a model for postpartum care and family planning services with limited resources from the government and ESD. As a result of the success at Al Saba'een Hospital, the Yemeni government supports continued scale-up of the intervention to all of the country's public hospitals and rural health facilities.
This issue of Pathways explores Pathfinder's ongoing commitment to addressing the urgent needs of pregnant women and how we are improving their chances for a safe delivery—from India, to Nigeria, to Pakistan.
We believe change starts with expertly trained providers and pharmacies that never run out of supplies. It starts with open conversations among women, young people, men, religious leaders, mothers-in-law, policymakers, and others, joining to discuss their beliefs and remove barriers to their health and well-being. Our 2014 Annual Report shows a few highlights of how Pathfinder has served as a catalyst for change over the past year.
