Using UN process indicators assess needs in emergency obstetric services:Gabon, Guinea-Bissau, and The Gambia.
International Journal of Gynecology and Obstetrics. 2007 Mar; 96(3):233-240.We report on assessments of the needs for emergency obstetric care in 3 West African countries. All (or almost all) medical facilities were visited to determine whether there are sufficient facilities of adequate quality to manage the expected number of obstetric emergencies. Medical facilities able to provide emergency obstetric care were poorly distributed and often were unable to provide needed procedures. Too few obstetricians and other providers, lack of on-the-job training and supervision were among the challenges faced in these countries. (author's)
