What are the effects of different models of delivery for improving maternal and infant health outcomes for poor people in urban areas in low income and lower middle income countries?

Record type: Monograph (Project Report)

The global burden of maternal and infant deaths falls disproportionately on low income countries (LICs) and lower middle income countries (LMCs) and among the poorest within these countries.

Urban growth is changing population health, particularly among the urban poor. The number of births taking place in urban areas in LICs and LMCs is increasing; services must accommodate this because large populations and high population density in urban areas influence options for service organisation.

It is crucial to establish evidence-based ways of improving models of service delivery and access to and uptake of maternal and infant care.

This systematic review addresses the question: ‘What are the effects of different models of delivery for improving maternal and infant health outcomes for poor people in urban areas in low income and lower middle income countries?’
