Sharing feedback to the WHO Safe Childbirth Checklist Collaboration
At the core of this effort is the sharing of experiences, results and lessons learned from each participating project. Members of the Collaboration are required to provide feedback throughout the course of their project to allow the greatest advancement in the understanding of the Safe Childbirth Checklist and its implementation strategies.
Minimum feedback - Progress report
Participants in the Collaboration will be expected to provide progress reports every 6 months describing their project’s progress as well as lessons and impact of their specific activity. Please see the following template as a guide to its elaboration.
Supplementary feedback - Key lessons on implementation of the Checklist
Additional materials, tools and lessons from various angles of implementing and testing the Checklist will be encouraged. WHO has set up a collaborative platform, the Safe Childbirth Checklist Collaboration SharePoint, where participants can post comments, propose and participate in discussions, and provide additional feedback.
Special opportunities for exchanging lessons, sharing experiences, cross-fertilizing initiatives about using the Checklist and keeping momentum within the Collaboration will be offered during the course of the Collaboration. WHO will convene participants in the Collaboration either physically or through electronic means every two years. These encounters will be instrumental to bring together knowledge and expertise around the use of the checklist and to build momentum and a substantive body of evidence to facilitating its wider spread.
WHO may wish to gather experiences and lessons across the members of the Collaboration by conducting additional surveys to help WHO better understand the implementation process.
As tangible products of the Collaboration, WHO will compile the shared know how and into descriptive and advocacy reports. WHO will acknowledge the participation of each individual organization in the Collaboration.
The following are some of the materials that may be useful to members of the Collaboration for their research, evaluative and feedback activities. These templates are not meant to replace specific research and epidemiological guidance.

WHO expects that participants in the Collaboration will commit and sharing experiences and lessons from their project activities. WHO may terminate participation in the Collaboration in cases where minimum sharing is not fulfilled.
