  • Strengthening the referral system for MNC.

Mentoring was provided to health workers providing MNC in the 58 supported health facilities and to health workers with leadership roles in these facilities, as well as to members of hospital development committees and health facility operation and management committees. A special group of facilitators were selected, senior clinical staff in the hospitals who were involved in the mentoring and were able to take over the clinical mentoring after the end of the intervention to ensure sustainable impact.

Combined clinical and management mentoring was provided in 58 facilities, including both Comprehensive Emergency Obstetric and Newborn Care (CEONC) and Basic Emergency Obstetric and Newborn Care (BEONC) sites and birthing centers.
