Gaps and opportunities for pre-eclampsia and eclampsia care in Ethiopia

This brief shares findings from a study that explored the gaps in antenatal care in Ethiopia, with a focus on pre-eclampsia and eclampsia (PE/E) at national, health system, and community levels. The study took place in peri-urban and rural areas of the Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples Region, and sought to understand the experience and burden of PE/E.

It specifically aimed to assess the policy and health systems environment related to PE/E diagnosis, referral, and treatment, and identified bottlenecks in the supply chain and investigated knowledge and perceptions of PE/E. It also aimed to describe barriers for provision/utilization of PE/E prevention and management, including antenatal and postnatal care during service delivery and within communities.

Feasibility of community level interventions for pre-eclampsia: perspectives, knowledge and task-sharing from Nigeria, Mozambique, Pakistan and India

This editorial discusses a supplement of seven studies that provide the results of the first round of the CLIP (Community Level Interventions for Pre-eclampsia) Feasibility Studies. These studies report a number of enablers and barriers in each setting and have informed the implementation of a cluster–randomized trial (cRCT), which is aimed at reducing pre-eclampsia-related, and all-cause, maternal and perinatal mortality and major morbidity using community-based identification and treatment of pre-eclampsia in selected geographies of Nigeria, Mozambique, Pakistan and India.

Lactation has been associated with reduced risk of maternal hypertension in the postpartum period and later life. However, little is known about whether lactation is also cardio-protective in women with hypertensive disorders of pregnancy such as pre-eclampsia or gestational hypertension.

Alternative regimens of magnesium sulfate for treatment of pre-eclampsia and eclampsia: a systematic review of non-randomized studies

The optimal dosing regimen of magnesium sulfate for treating pre-eclampsia and eclampsia is unclear. Evidence from the Cochrane review of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) was inconclusive due to lack of relevant data. To complement the evidence from the Cochrane review, we assessed available data from non-randomized studies on the comparative efficacy and safety of alternative magnesium sulfate regimens for the management of pre-eclampsia and eclampsia.
