ABSTRACT

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To identify, synthesise and evaluate the effects of health system and other interventions aimed at improving maternal, newborn and women's reproductive health in crisis settings.

Mentions: A more extensive model identifying the causes of maternal and newborn morbidity and mortality has been proposed by the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF 2009) (Figure 2). This framework highlights that maternal and newborn health outcomes (morbidity and mortality) are largely determined by a number of interconnected causes, including basic causes operating at the societal level; underlying causes operating at the household, community and district levels; and direct/proximal causes operating at the individual level. Although these frameworks are not specifically developed for crisis settings, it can be inferred that the main ‘causes' and ‘delays' of maternal and neonatal morbidity and mortality are severely exacerbated during a crisis, potentially leading to increased morbidity and mortality. For example, it is well known that in emergency settings access to basic health care services (including access to emergency obstetric care and family planning), hygiene and sanitation is severely disrupted, and is coupled to poor access to nutritious foods. These inadequacies are directly or indirectly translated into increased obstetric risk, diseases and poor dietary intake at the individual level.
