As a complement to the study, the development of this course was motivated by the commitment of the INTERGROWTH-21st Consortium to improve maternal and perinatal health globally. This training course is a practical interactive package targeted at health professionals caring for pregnant women and their newborns.

The aim of the course is to provide healthcare providers with evidence-based recommendations for disease prevention and management of pregnant women and their babies during the COVID-19 pandemic and thereby lessen the adverse maternal and newborn outcomes from the disease.


The content of this course is based on the information available as at April 2021. Any new developments that require updating will be done periodically.
