The Safe Childbirth Checklist Collaboration
The WHO Patient Safety is currently putting together a framework for identifying a range of clinical care processes where checklists would save patient lives and reduce serious harm. The Safe Childbirth Checklist is an extremely important initiative, and one that MWIA could easily become involved with. The picture shows from left to right: Dr. Shafika Nasser (MWIA Vice-President Africa and near East), Dr. Itziar Larizgoitia (WHO checklist coordinator), Dr. Clarissa Fabre (MWIA WHO representative, Geneva).

WHO is pleased to launch a collaborative field-testing exercise to explore implementation and usability of the checklist in multiple settings. WHO encourages the participation of health-care institutions, research organizations, nongovernmental organizations and others who are interested in improving maternal and newborn health. Participants from around the world are invited to conduct implementation research and generate information on the most effective ways of implementing and using the checklist, in a range of settings.
