The experience of the implementation of perinatal audit in Moldova.

Abstract

The Beyond the Numbers project in Moldova implemented perinatal mortality audit as a means to improve maternity and newborn care. Key activities for this project included training in audit, the setting up of audit committees, implementation of the review of cases and dissemination of information. During the project, a significant reduction was noted of perinatal deaths at term (from 37 weeks gestation and birthweight of ≥2500 g) by 1.5 per 1000; from 5.1 per 1000 in 2006 to 3.6 per 1000 in 2013.
