Publish Date: October 2016
Author: Vandana Tripathi

A validated tool for measuring the quality of routine intrapartum and immediate postpartum care was developed using QoC Survey data and tools created under USAID’s predecessor Maternal and Child Health Integrated Program (MCHIP). Attached is a user guide, which provides both versions of the observational checklist as well as information on why and how the tool should be used.

For more information on the orientation resources created to support users in preparing to use the observational checklists, visit MCHIP’s Quality of Care Surveys page.
