• WHO Recommendations on Postnatal Care of the Mother and Newborn 08-08-2014

WHO 2013 Report

The primary audience for these guidelines is health professionals who are responsible for providing postnatal care to women and newborns, primarily in areas where resources are limited.

The guidelines are also expected to be used by policy-makers and managers of maternal and child health programmes, health facilities, and teaching institutions to set up and maintain maternity and newborn care services.

The information in these guidelines will be included in job aids and tools for both pre- and in-service training of health professionals to improve their knowledge, skills and performance in postnatal care.
