Who Delivers without Water? A Multi Country Analysis of Water and Sanitation in the Childbirth Environment

I thought SuSanA members would be interested in this new paper in PLoS One:

Who Delivers without Water? A Multi Country Analysis of Water and Sanitation in the Childbirth Environment

Conclusions

Access to water and sanitation during childbirth is poor across low and middle-income countries. Even when women travel to health facilities for childbirth, they are not guaranteed access to basic WATSAN infrastructure. These indicators should be measured routinely in order to inform improvements.
