This report describes the results of a four-country assessment, funded by the US Agency for International Development (USAID), of high-impact maternal and newborn childbirth practices in the Europe and Eurasia (E&E) region. Conducted between October 2010 and August 2011 in 42 maternities in Albania, Armenia, Georgia, and Russia, the assessment examined the quality of high-impact childbirth and early post-partum maternal-newborn practices in sampled facilities, including the status of cross-cutting health system functions and provider and client attitudes, knowledge, and self-reported practices. The study provides a multi-perspective look at the quality of maternal- newborn care currently provided and as perceived by clients, with an eye toward assessing areas of strength and areas needing improvement.
