To assess the quality of facility-based active management of the third stage of labor in Ethiopia, Kenya, Madagascar, Mozambique, Rwanda and the United Republic of Tanzania, 2317 women in 390 health facilities were observed during third stage of labor (2009-12). 94% of women observed were given oxytocin or another uterotonic but only 36% of the 1037 investigated providers had received relevant training in previous three years.
