This report provides neonatal and perinatal mortality estimates by country, regional groupings and globally. For countries that do not have data, models were developed to estimate mortality. Since data on deaths come from a number of different sources, the methods used to obtain the estimates are also described.

Estimates of stillbirth deaths that occur during delivery (intrapartum) by regional groupings, as well as estimates of sex ratio in neonatal, early neonatal and stillbirth mortality for the developing world are also included.--Publisher's description

Midwifery education modules : education for safe motherhood( )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The six modules aim to help skilled practitioners think critically and make effective decisions on the basis of solid knowledge and understanding of these complications. When using the modules for basic midwifery programmes, it is understood that students should already be competent in most of the basic skills such as measuring blood pressure, performing a vaginal examination, conducting a normal delivery and prevention of infection. The modules were released in 1996 and have now been updated in line with recent evidence and the WHO clinical guidelines. Each module can be taught independently of the other modules. It is however advisable to work through all of them."--World Health Organization website

WHO guidelines on preventing early pregnancy and poor reproductive health outcomes among adolescents in developing countries by World Health Organization( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adolescent pregnancy contributes to maternal, perinatal and infant mortality, and to a vicious cycle of poverty and ill-health. Reducing adolescent pregnancy is vital for achieving the Millennium Development Goals that relate to childhood and maternal mortality, and to the overall goal of poverty reduction. National reproductive health policies of a growing number of countries have identified tackling adolescent pregnancy as a priority. However, the approaches adopted are - in many cases - not as comprehensive as they should be and often not based on sound evidence. WHO guidelines on preventing early pregnancy and poor reproductive outcomes among adolescents in developing countries provides a robust evidence base to help develop or reshape national policies and strategies. The guidelines help to ensure that available resources are spent on optimal approaches to prevent early pregnancies among adolescents, and on reducing morbidity and mortality associated with pregnancy and childbirth
