As COVID-19 continues to spread rapidly around the world, the impact on acute care services such as maternal and newborn care in countries with less developed health systems are likely to be substantial. Lack of access to personal protective equipment (PPE) for frontline health workers, as well as a shortage of essential medical supplies for maternal and newborn health, makes these countries particularly vulnerable to the COVID-19 crisis, with potentially dire consequences for women and newborns. This partnership will support the continuous delivery of life-saving maternal and newborn health services to at least 350,000 women and newborns, including 12,700 women facing life threatening complications.
