Hypertensive disorders in pregnancy (HDPs) are responsible for 70K maternal deaths globally, killing a woman every 11 minutes. Unfortunately, the level of adherence to guidelines on postpartum management of HDPs in tertiary hospitals in Nigeria is poor, and worse scenarios should be expected for secondary- and primary-level facilities 🇳🇬🤰🏽

Harnessing the Power of Networks of Care for Universal Health Coverage

This Special issue of @HSRJournal provides a detailed overview of the #NetworksOfCare concept through a multi-method scoping study and case studies from six diverse settings, providing health workers with the language and insights to describe and adopt the system to their local context.

Learn how #NetworksOfCare can help #HealthSystems improve access to and quality of care, while improving health service delivery and outcomes for patients.

Networks of Care provide a practicable and measurable means to achieve #UniversalHealthCoverage. More here: https://buff.ly/3kUV9iN

In overcrowded hospitals in Dar es Salaam, #Tanzania, high- and low-risk patients in different stages of labor vie for attention in the same location, with delays to services, and insufficient care from the few available staff resulting in poor outcomes even for low-risk patients. By treating women in labor at multiple facilities including health centers nearer to where they live, many of these challenges can be avoided. This includes less overcrowding at hospitals as well as fewer delays for women who require emergency transportation to the next level of care.
