dc.description.abstract Maternal Death Review (MDR) is a key element for improving the quality of maternal health care services. More than counting maternal deaths, it looks beyond the numbers to study the causes and avoidable factors behind each death, leading to actions to improve quality of care based on the findings. Through this project, nurses, doctors and clinical officers were trained in all eight provinces, with a total of 285 service providers trained from eighty hospitals and training colleges. A strategic plan was developed for Pumwani Maternity Hospital in the informal settlements of Nairobi, the largest specialist maternity hospital in the region comprising 70-100 deliveries daily. en
