How We Work

Quality Improvement in Private Sector
Federation of Obstetric and Gynaecological Societies of India (FOGSI) in collaboration with MSD for Mothers and Jhpiego implemented a three-year program (2013- 2016) aimed to increase access to high-impact, evidence-based antenatal, intra-partum and immediate postpartum care to mothers by leveraging the enterprise of private sector providers in Uttar Pradesh and Jharkhand.
• The program was implemented in 11 large cities in the two states under where about 140 private sector facilities were targeted.
• FOGSI and Jhpiego implemented a quality of care framework (including clinical and hospital standards) at these high delivery load facilities.
• Of the 140, some facilities had applied for quality certification through a national accreditation body and have now been certified.

Manyata (FOGSI led Quality Improvement and Quality Assurance)
Transitioning into its second phase- FOGSI has developed 16 core clinical standards on antenatal, delivery, and postpartum period. Manyata is a stamp of quality which ensures the best clinical practices are upheld by well-trained staff providing a better, respectful and safer experience for mothers during childbirth.
• Select facilities from Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra and Jharkhand are being enrolled and assessed on the FOGSI clinical standards
• On passing an external FOGSI assessment, facilities receive the ‘Manyata’ certification.
• FOGSI linked QI structures will provide training, mentoring and support to improve their adherence to the standards and the subsequent certification.
• Jhpiego is providing the technical support to sustain the initiative through implementation of QI hubs. These QI hubs, managed by the FOGSI National Program Management Unit (NPMU) routinely assess facilities for standards.

MacArthur has been active in India since 1990. The Foundation’s presence in-country has enabled it to work and partner directly with a diverse set of individuals and institutions who have and continue to play a remarkable role in the field of maternal and reproductive health and in promoting the participation of girls in accessing quality secondary education in the country. Resulting from internal deliberations, the Foundation is currently supporting the implementation of a legacy phase for its Population and Reproductive Health program and an exit phase for its Girls Secondary Education program. There is also limited grant making focused on internet governance as part of the Foundation's interest in advancing technology in the public interest.
