Strengths and weaknesses in the implementation of maternal and perinatal death reviews in Tanzania; perceptions, processes and practice

A recent article, published in Tropical Medicine and International Health, by C. E. Armstrong, I. L. Lange, M. Magoma, C. Ferla, V. Filippi, and C. Ronsmans, analyses the implementation of MPDR in Tanzania at district and regional hospitals and how the staff have engaged with the system, and their perceptions of it.

This qualitative study using semi-structured interviews with thirty-seven key informants found that there was a great need to strengthen the capacities of staff to collect quality data.
