For eight years, the Prevention of Maternal Mortality (PMM) Network in West Africa designed, implemented and evaluated projects to reduce barriers to care for women with obstetric complications.
Many valuable lessons were learned concerning program development and implementation.
A multidisciplinary approach enabled the Network to address the various aspects of the problem ; collaboration between teams encouraged the sharing of resources and experiences ; and collaboration with government and communities enhanced project sustainability.
Capacity building through long-term, systematic technical support resulted in a Network of proficient researchers.
Existing human and material resources were utilized to enhance the feasibility and sustainability of projects - a strategy that could be adopted in other developing countries.
Cost-tracking was used as a management and evaluation tool.
The collective experience of the Network offers guidance for program planners and researchers working on maternal mortality in developing countries.
