Introducing Group Prenatal Care (GPC) in Bangladesh

Abdur Razzaque Sarker from the International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease in Bangladesh will test whether group prenatal care for women has a positive effect on maternal and child health when compared with traditional one-on-one prenatal care. They hypothesize that prenatal classes with groups of 8-10 women will promote support networks and social interactions, and facilitate learning, thereby improving health outcomes. This will be tested using a prospective study in selected health centers in Bangladesh.
