Abstract:INTRODUCTION:Recent ecologic data from WHO Department of Reproductive Health and Research including HRP showthat when caesarean section rates increases to 10% across a population (e.g. a country), the number of maternal and newborn deaths decrease. When the rate goes above 10%, there is no evidence that mortality rates improve. Due to differences in the cases and obstetric profile of mothers however, it is often difficult to determine an appropriate rate of caesarean section forindividual health facilities. A new mathematical model has now been launched to address this issue. Known as the C-Model, and developed by WHO RHR / HRP and partners, the tool is able to estimate the expected caesarean section rate in health facilities according to the characteristics of the population that they s
