PLEASE NOTE: Pre-registration to the webinar is not required. Please mark your calendars or revisit this site on the day of the event, Monday, July 17th at 10:00 AM (EDT), to participate.

Ariadne Labs has developed tools including checklists for childbirth, surgery, and serious illness that have resulted in measurable improvements in patient care and are now being adopted by private sector partners, governmental organizations, and health systems worldwide. We are pleased to collaborate with the Maternal Health Task Force (MHTF) at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health to present the next webinar in this series dedicated towards quality improvement, specifically respectful maternity care. The MHTF strives to create a strong, well-informed, and integrated community of individuals around the globe focused on ending preventable maternal mortality and morbidity worldwide.


The objectives of the webinar are to:

  • Review the WHO Safe Childbirth Checklist as a quality improvement tool
  • Learn the basic principles and issues related to respectful maternity care
  • Understand how respectful maternity care relates to quality of care more generally, as well as improved maternal health outcomes
  • Explore strategies for integrating respectful maternity care into quality improvement initiatives from case studies around the world
