Women in many low and middle income countries, including India, still lack access to quality care during and after childbirth. While systems have invested to
improve access to essential care during intra- and immediate postpartum care, quality of care is grossly sub-optimal due to innate system barriers which
include shortage of human resources, infrastructure and information systems.
This has resulted in sub-optimal access to quality intra- and immediate post-partum services for women and the newborns. Contextually appropriate innovative solutions, if tested and scaled up in time sensitive manner, can help in improving access to intra- and immediate postpartum care for women and their newborns.
