In an effort to develop a comprehensive, globally-relevant understanding of recommended maternal, newborn and child health interventions, the Partnership for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health (2011) developed the evidence-based, essential interventions for reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health. One of the world’s regions most dramatically affected by poor maternal health is sub-Saharan Africa, due to its inadequate infrastructure and lack of human and financial resources for health care. This region is also burdened by high rates of infectious disease, particularly tuberculosis and HIV. In order to investigate the use of the essential interventions among a specific population with a high burden of disease, within an extremely limited health care system, this book provides a commentary on the literature on the use of the interventions among women and children with tuberculosis in sub-Saharan Africa.
