Goals in Maternal and Perinatal Care in Latin America and The Caribbean
Ten goals have been developed to guide perinatal caregivers by the Latin American Centre for Perinatology (CLAP), a PAHO/WHO unit dedicated to improving perinatal care in Latin America and The Caribbean. The goals were inspired by the current troubled perinatal care situation, the need to make significant changes, principles of evidence‐based medicine, and reviews of many sources from other regions or countries.
