MCSP assisted the MOH in Madagascar to improve facility readiness to provide maternal and newborn health services and strengthen clinical practices in 822 facilities across 16 regions. The primary approaches to achieve these objectives included in-service and pre-service training, supportive supervision and mentoring for health facility clinical staff, clinical governance and quality improvement (CG/QI) activities, including the creation/support of QI committees and institutionalizing facility-based quality dashboards of high-impact interventions, and supplying basic MNH and family planning commodities including implants, intrauterine devices, blood pressure cuffs, stethoscopes, fetoscopes and newborn resuscitation kits.
