Cost-effectiveness of a quality improvement collaborative for obstetric and newborn care in Niger

This is one of the first studies known to examine collaborative quality improvement and economic efficiency in a developing country.

The purpose of this paper is to describe a quality improvement collaborative conducted in 33 Nigerian facilities to improve maternal and newborn care outcomes by increasing compliance with high-impact, evidence-based care standards.

Intervention costs and cost-effectiveness were examined and costs to the Niger Health Ministry were estimated if they were to scale-up the intervention to additional sites.
