The national emergency obstetric and newborn care (EmONC) assessment collected information from 112 hospitals and 685 health centers in Ethiopia, focusing on their infrastructure, the services they provided, human resources, equipment and supplies, case load, and mortality due to pre-eclampsia/ eclampsia. Because of home births, only a small fraction (3.8%) of all women with  pre-eclampsia/eclampsia received care at health facilities. Expansion of health services should be augmented with periodic assessments of logistics and quality-related issues to assure functioning facilities for women accessing obstetric services.
