As the leaders of maternal health improvement in ap
As the leaders of maternal health improvement in AP: Andhra Pradesh

  • You need a common database on the incidence of the main problems

  • Without it, we cannot prioritize action

  • Nor can we monitor trends

  • Nor can we take early preventive action…


And nor
… and nor: Andhra Pradesh

  • … can we know which communities at high risk to target

  • Nor can we avoid INCREASING inequalities

  • Nor can we tell whether we are making the maternal and neonatal mortality, stillbirth or morbidity rates WORSE over time


Example 1
Example 1 Andhra Pradesh

  • What is the AP stillbirth rate?

  • Does it vary between urban & rural districts?

  • Who would you target, to reduce it?


Example 2
Example 2: Andhra Pradesh

  • A sample study in 2008 said that the AP stillbirth rate was 10 /1000

  • Likely??

  • Perhaps we should learn from Bihar –

  • They did not report a single stillbirth in 2008 !


Monitoring incidence over time
Monitoring incidence over time: Andhra Pradesh

  • What is the incidence of GDM in AP?

  • And in your hospital?

  • Will it increase as obesity rates follow the Western pattern?

  • Should we act now?

  • Where would we target action?


Without accurate data on maternal outcomes
Without accurate data on maternal outcomes… Andhra Pradesh

  • … or on the incidence of key morbidities:

  • How will we know whether the MMR rate is rising or falling?

  • Or whether the gap between the affluent and poor women is WIDENING?


Don t rely on national data
Don’t rely on national data Andhra Pradesh

  • …or on local studies in Bangalore, Orissa or New Delhi…

  • Because rates vary so widely

  • So you might inadvertently target populations with lower risk

  • Examples from another country:


To assist data sharing
To assist data sharing: Andhra Pradesh

  • Fernandez Hospital has started a small maternal public health database for AP

  • We will need you to share data

  • It will be a public website

  • We will invite you all to a data planning workshop.

  • You will be invited to recommend priorities
