The Promotion and Essential Obstetric and Neonatal Care strategy (ProCONE) in Guatemala uses a collaborative learning methodology to improve the quality of maternal and neonatal care in health units. During the demonstration phase of this strategy, 25 health units in the department of San Marcos worked together to improve care. This cross sectional study sought to answer: 1) how were health posts in the spread phase in San Marcos exposed to the ProCONE strategy, methodology, and interventions from the demonstration phase and 2) what interventions resulting from the collaborative in San Marcos were adopted or replicated by the health posts in the spread phase. This report is the English summary of a full study available in Spanish.
