Aim: Delivering in Central Asia is risky for women in general and for specific groups in particular, due to the absence of awareness under providers on rights-based and clients-centred approaches. Women in maternities are striped off human dignity, while almost all deliveries take place in those facilities. Associations of midwives and ob/gyns lack an ethical code that guides them towards prevention of life threatening neglect, disrespect and abuse of women-in-labour and after. The project aims to raise the awareness on the need to respect rights of all women in birth facilities and specifically it intends to include an ethical code in the constitution of the professional organisations for midwives and ob/gyns in Kyrgyzstan, as a pilot that provides evidence for the other countries an ethical guiding principle contributes to enhanced respect of reproductive rights, and so to enhanced quality of services, and so to life saving conditions in maternities in Central Asia.• KOAGN presentation• KOAGN report (English from p58 onwards)

Aim: This proposal is part of the first step in a planned long term (3 year) partnership between the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology (O&G) of the University of Gondar and affiliated health centres, Ethiopia (GU) and the Dutch Working Party on International Safe Motherhood & Reproductive Health (WP-ISMRH). The present grant application is to cover the initial need assessment on-site, and the introduction of the globally renowned Liverpool School Emergency Obstetric and Newborn Care (EmONC) training for both referral hospital (GU) and affiliated health centres. The aim of this unique collaboration is that all health care providers in the region will use the same EmONC definitions and protocols. Ultimately, it would not matter in which health facility in Gondar region a woman receives her health care, as all centres will use the same initial assessment and emergency care. We expect that this will have a considerable positive effect on the motivation of staff and improvement of quality of care (third delay). The knowledge and skills of trainees and quality of obstetric care in all departments and health centres will be assessed during ongoing training and evaluation visits.• ISM&RH presentation
