This webinar will discuss how countries have taken measures to ensure continuity of quality maternal health services at a time when COVID-19 mitigation measures are impacting access to essential health services. Speakers will present how health professionals have changed the way they provide quality care around the time of childbirth – especially when it comes to referrals and maternal complications.
An obstetrician-gynecologist from Uganda will share how a project in Kampala has adapted its implementation model to encourage women to seek care during the pandemic. An expert from the Ghana Health Service/ Ministry of Health will also present an example from Ghana.
The presentations will be followed by an ‘Ask the experts’ session.
