Woman-Centered Care

Woman-Centered Care

Improving Provision & Experience of Care

Across the globe, women and families seeking maternal and related health services too often endure mistreatment and/or poor clinical care. Implementation Science Collaborative (ISC) partners advance evidence-informed approaches to improve both critical dimensions of quality: the provision and experience of care, especially as it relates to postpartum hemorrhage and respectful maternal care. Our global partners and those in Malawi, Madagascar, Kenya, and Tanzania have reflected the power of local leadership, meaningful stakeholder engagement, implementation evidence, and dissemination to inform woman-centered care in their countries.
