About WHO Recruitment:

The World Health Organization (WHO) as the leader in global public health issues is committed to building future leaders in public health.

Facility-based childbirth is increasing globally and in Ghana, but high proportions of avoidable maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality still occur in facilities. A major roadblock identified is the suboptimal Quality of Care for mothers and newborns. It has, therefore, become necessary to go beyond maximizing coverage of essential interventions to ensure the quality of care to accelerate reductions in maternal and perinatal mortality and severe morbidity.
