PartoMa Study - for saving lives at birth

An intervention based study to strengthen the quality of monitoring, action and triage during childbirth at an East African Referral Hospital

The PartoMa study is a collaboration between University of Copenhagen, Denmark, and Mnazi Mmoja Hospital, Tanzania, aiming at improving care during childbirth. Since October 2014, we have worked together on developing and implementing simple and locally achievable guidelines on childbirth care to assist the birth attendants in delivering best possible surveillance and treatment to the many women in birth.

The PartoMa study is an example of how deaths and disabilities can be reduced if health workers have access to basic healthcare information tailored to their reality.

Principal investigator: Nanna Maaløe, MD, PhD student
