|Agenda setting||What is going on in policy discourse||Policy considerations (questions) to ask during future policy making|
|Prevention of stillbirths|
|Still not an agenda in policy making, low competing priority||Intention to begin to report stillbirths (occasional statements), but not yet focussed||
• Is the technical/epidemiologic separation of stillbirths and newborn death having any social implications? Has this influenced realization of seeing mother and baby as a single unit in any way? Has it affected district/primary healthcare level, how?|
• Has perinatal survival been considered as an agenda of health promotion, and if so, what could that mean?
• Have the policy approach/strategies been community based, empowering individuals and communities, or merely focussed on attempting to correct health behaviours?
• Does policy community and implementing units need further realization that perinatal survival is not just a medical issue?
• Have health systems (primary health care) been considered to leverage delivery of perinatal healthcare in developing countries? Or are the programmes being implemented just as vertically based technical packages?
|An agenda in policy, healthcare system, but pre-dominantly viewed as a vertical technical/medical initiative||Intention to integrate newborn in child and maternal health within health sector|
