DESCRIPTION
This guide is designed to assist program designers working for international NGOs in selecting essential components, actions and appropriate indicators for chosen interventions in maternal and newborn care. It includes five interrelated tables that correspond to the temporal phases of a woman’s reproductive cycle:

  1. Pre-Conception/ Inter-Conception
  2. Antenatal
  3. Labor and Delivery
  4. Postpartum Care
  5. Newborn Care

The Compendium provides NGOs with a single source of information to:

  1. Determine recommended practices and standards of care at the household, community, and health care facility levels to address maternal and newborn care
  2. Identify which indicators are appropriate to use with the different interventions
