This cross-sectional study included quantitative measures and a qualitative approach to better understand the context in which the improvement of clinical indicators occurred. The study found that while baseline indicator performance levels were higher in Mali than in Niger, the implementation of the essential obstetric and newborn care collaborative and best practices led to significant improvements in clinical indicators in Mali. Adherence to the active management of the third stage of labor increased from 24% to 100% in eight months. Post-partum hemorrhage and adherence to essential newborn care also decreased significantly.
