Informed Consent for Cesarean Section in Sub-Saharan Africa: A Scoping Review Brief

The original scoping review conducted by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), on which this brief is based, sought to better understand the existing range of literature on informed consent practices for CS in low- and middle-income countries. The scoping review mapped and synthesized evidence from existing literature on the practices and experiences of counseling, informed consent, and debriefing (CCD)—including barriers, facilitators, and interventions to promote these practices—to highlight key challenges and any previously successful programmatic interventions to address them. The review also identified research gaps and provides recommendations for future research.
