WHO: Improving the quality of care for maternal, newborn and child health (2)

3 November, 2022

Dear HIFA and CHIFA Colleagues, Thanks for sharing this information.

Wondering how will be taken care of women with disabilities and children with disabilities, is there any thing in the guide of implementation. [*see note below]

[*Note from NPW, moderator: This particular guide does not appear to have a section specifically on quality of care for people with disabilities. WHO does, however, have extensive information and guidance on this subject: https://www.who.int/health-topics/disability An important point to note in our current discussion is: 'When people with disability access health care, they often experience stigma and discrimination, and receive poor quality services.' This 2021 WHO Policy brief on disability-inclusive health systems is Europe focused but addresses policy issues relevant to quality of care


Can anyone recommend practical publications on improving quality of care for people with disabilities?]
