The Safe Childbirth Checklist Collaboration

WHO is pleased to launch the Safe Childbirth Checklist Collaboration to explore the implementation and usability of the checklist in multiple settings. The Collaboration provides a platform for the learning and sharing of experiences, and is part of broader works towards the Millennium Development Goals 4 and 5.

WHO welcomes health-care groups, academic institutions, and nongovernmental and other organizations interested in improving maternal and newborn health to join the Collaboration. Participants from around the world are invited to conduct implementation research and generate information on the most effective ways of implementing and using the checklist in multiple settings.

Through the Collaboration, members will be connected to an international network of fellow researchers and institutions with whom they can share discussions and findings.
