Effective Perinatal Care (EPC) Training Package
In 2004, WHO/Europe developed the EPC training package in the framework of the Making Pregnancy Safer strategic approach. New evidence and WHO requirements for guidelines development provided a basis for the updating of the EPC modules and development of the second edition in 2015. In 2017, two new Modules on Right of women during childbirth (16C) and on Antenatal care for a positive pregnancy experience (1MO) were developed based on recent evidence, recommendations and standards. The development of the EPC training package was coordinated by the WHO Collaborating Centre for Maternal and Child Health, Institute of Child Health IRCCS Burlo Garofolo, Trieste, Italy. The Russian translation was carried out by the WHO Collaborating Centre for Reproductive Health in Human Reproduction, Research Center for Obstetrics, Gynecology and Perinatology of the Ministry of Health, Moscow, Russian Federation.
