Potential Pregnancy Days Lost (PPDL): An Innovative Gestational Age Measure to Assess Maternal and Child Health Interventions and Outcomes

The main goal of the project is to develop and explore an innovative measure of gestational age - "potential pregnancy days lost" (PPDL) - to produce evidence of its association with maternal and child health, morbidity and mortality in the short, medium and long term. The indicator also aims to convince women and policy makers about the need to promote less interventions and "harm-free care" during pregnancy.
