Welcome to Decision-Making Pathways to Address Workforce Bottlenecks for MDG5
Purpose of the tool
This interactive tool supports decision makers in identifying actions and relevant resources to help address low Skilled Birth Attendants (SBA) coverage as part of a broader effort to improve maternal health.
Increasing availability and utilization of quality services provided by competent health workers can result in improvements in maternal health outcomes. However, substantial improvements in maternal health depend on a range of health services including emergency obstetric care, family planning and safe abortion care, as well as broader determinants of women's health.
This decision tool is designed for use by policy-makers, practitioners, health service and human resource managers with an interest in maternal health and other stakeholders engaged in identifying, promoting, and/or implementing actions to improve human resources for maternal health.
