Maternal og perinatal morbiditet og mortalitet ved keisersnitt i Sierra Leone

Vitenskapelig tittel:

Maternal and perinatal outcomes after Caesarean Section in Sierra Leone

A prospective observational study

Every year, one and a half million deaths can be avoided if safe essential and emergency surgical care would have been available. Shortage of health care staff is considered the main reason for the extensive unmet need for surgery. Sierra Leone has one of the highest maternal mortality ratios in the world, with 11 mothers dying of pregnancy related complications, for every 1000 live born babies. One possibility to improve access to essential obstetric and surgical care is to train non-physicians clinicians. To date, there are few studies that have examined the safety of surgical task-sharing. The aim of this project is to assess quality of surgical care in Sierra Leone and examine differences in mortality and morbidity after caesarean sections performed by medical doctors and non-physician clinicians. Other related areas that will be examined are: risk factors for postoperative mortality, long-term (1 and 5 year) outcomes, catastrophic expenditure and women’s experience.
