This analysis identified strengths and gaps in existing facility capacity for intrapartum and immediate postpartum fetal and neonatal care, using data collected from 84 Malawian health facilities as a part of Malawi’s Helping Babies Breath program evaluation. Surveyed availability of equipment, key supplies, and medications, and health worker knowledge and performance scores on intrapartum care simulation and actual management of real clients. 75% had no clinician trained in basic emergency obstetric care or newborn care and 39% had no midwife trained.
