2019 Pregnancy Outcomes in Health Facilities in Kigoma Region, Tanzania: Final Report File icon

The CDC's Division of Reproductive Health monitors and evaluates activities of the Reducing Maternal Mortality in Tanzania Project in the remote Kigoma region of western Tanzania. As part of that project, this evaluation collected and analyzed data on maternal and perinatal health outcomes as well as the capacity and functionality of emergency obstetric and neonatal care (EmONC) services.

This endline evaluation used a pregnancy outcomes monitoring system (POMS) method to collect and examine data from 197 health facilities. This method collects data from labor and delivery registers, operating theater registers, admission and discharge registers, case notes, in-patient postpartum care registers, nurses' report books, and obstetric wards daily reports. The evaluation also employed a modified form of Rapid Ascertainment Process for Institutional Deaths (RAPID), a method that aims to identify all maternal deaths occurring in a facility.

European Economic Area COVID-19 Hospital Needs and Death Projections

IHME has produced forecasts which show hospital bed use, need for intensive care beds, and ventilator use due to COVID-19 based on projected deaths for countries in the European Economic Area (EEA). Forecasts at the subnational level are included for three of these: Germany, Italy, and Spain. These projections are produced by models based on observed death rates from COVID-19, and include uncertainty intervals. They incorporate information about social distancing and other protective measures and are being updated daily with new data. These forecasts were developed in order to provide hospitals, policy makers, and the public with crucial information about how expected need aligns with existing resources, so that cities and states can best prepare.
