WHO Recommendations for Prevention and Treatment of Maternal Peripartum Infections

We are pleased to share new French translations of the Recommendations for Prevention and Treatment of Maternal Peripartum Infections(Recommandations de l’OMS sur la prévention et le traitement des infections maternelles du péripartum) evidence brief from USAID’s flagship Maternal and Child Survival Program and World Health Organization. You can find the newly translated brief here— 

This evidence brief provides highlights and key messages from World Health Organization’s recommendations for prevention and treatment of maternal peripartum infections, including policy and program implications for translating the guidelines into action at the country level. The ultimate goal of the WHO recommendations is to improve quality of care and to reduce preventable death and disability associated with peripartum infection for mothers and newborns. This brief is intended for policy-makers, programme managers, educators and providers.
