Optimizing health worker roles to improve access to key maternal and newborn health interventions through task shifting: WHO recommendations
These recommendations are intended for health policy-makers, managers and other stakeholders at a regional, national and international level. WHO hopes that countries will adapt and implement them to meet local needs. This website presents the OptimizeMNH recommendations in an interactive format. Users can browse the recommendations by type (for example, whether WHO recommends the intervention, or recommends against the intervention) or by type of intervention (for example, whether the intervention is delivered during pregnancy or delivered after birth). For each recommendation, users can also obtain more information on the justification provided by WHO and can obtain the full text of the recommendation, including the evidence base and implementation considerations.
