|Preventing Prolonged Labour III (WHO - OMS, 1994, 40 p.)|
This manual was developed by an Informal Working Group convened by the World Health Organization (WHO) in Geneva, 6-8 April 1988, and updated in 1994, following results obtained from The application of the WHO partograph in the management of labour: Report of a WHO multicentre study 1990-1991 (WHO/FHE/MSM/94.4). Mrs Helen Kerr prepared the background document for the working group.
