COVID-19: How We’re Responding


For #SelfCareDay 2021, we emphasize the potential of #SelfCare in maternal health.🤱

Self-care interventions can be a powerful tool for women with chronic maternal morbidities like obstetric #fistula, especially in settings with limited care access.

“Engendering hope where the hardship is great and the path to lasting change is long. That’s what @USAID is tasked with. And Kate, you have already shown your commitment and your capacity to do just that.”

Congratulations to USAID's new Mission Director in Tanzania!

For many women, pregnancy is their first contact with health services. As a result, integrated, high-quality maternal & obstetric care is key to address broader aspects of women’s health.

COPE® Handbook: A Process for Improving Quality in Health Services

COPE®, which stands for “client-oriented, provider-efficient” services, is a process that helps health care staff continuously improve the quality and efficiency of services provided at their facility and make services more responsive to clients’ needs. COPE provides staff with practical, easy-to-use tools to identify problems and develop solutions using local resources, and it encourages all levels of staff and supervisors to work together as a team and to involve clients in assessing services. Through COPE, staff develop a customer focus, learning to define quality in concrete terms by putting themselves in their clients’ shoes. The process also enables staff to explore the strengths of their work site.

COPE® Handbook: A Process for Improving Quality in Health Services, Revised Edition reflects lessons that EngenderHealth and its counterparts in more than 45 countries have learned over the past decades in developing, applying, evaluating, and adapting COPE. In this revision, the handbook’s format has been updated to be more user-friendly for facilitators as they orient managers, train site facilitators, guide facility staff in using the COPE tools, and adapt the COPE process and tools to best fit the facility’s needs. The chapters are organized to take the reader from an introduction to the concepts of COPE and quality improvement to the basics of how to prepare and lead the first COPE exercises, facilitate an Action Plan Meeting, conduct subsequent exercises, perform a Client-Flow Analysis, and follow up between exercises.

The handbook is designed to be used in conjunction with COPE toolbooks oriented toward a variety of types of health services. Click here to view or download our COPE toolbooks on reproductive health services, cervical cancer prevention services, and maternal health services.
