National Programs for the Prevention and Management of Postpartum Hemorrhage and Hypertensive Disorders of Pregnancy: A Global Survey

Postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) and hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (HDP) continue to be two of the three leading direct causes of maternal death in low- and middle-income countries. In 2022, USAID, with support from MOMENTUM Country and Global Leadership and MOMENTUM Private Healthcare Delivery and their multiple partners, conducted a survey of national programs working to reduce maternal and newborn mortality from PPH and HDP. From January to May 2022, 31 countries in sub-Saharan Africa, South and Southeast Asia, and Latin America and the Caribbean completed a 69-question survey on national PPH and HDP policies and practices in the public and private sectors. Findings from the 2022 survey generated several compelling insights into the current status of national programs addressing PPH and HDP; these insights have implications for national policies, guidelines, capacity building and training, midwife scope of practice, data tracking on HMIS, programs, and future research. These resources share detailed findings of the analysis and highlights and key messages in the technical brief.
