Cover of Manifestations and drivers of mistreatment of women during childbirth in Kenya: implications for measurement and developing interventions

This paper builds on the expanding literature on mistreatment during labor and childbirth–outlining drivers from an individual, family, community, facility and policy level. New frameworks to group the manifestations into themes or components makes it increasingly more focused on specific interventions to promote respectful maternity care. The Kenya findings resonate with budding literature–demonstrating that this is indeed a global issue that needs a global solution.
