Electronic Partograph

The partograph is a useful tool in managing labour and - when correctly used - can help birth attendants detect abnormal labour progression and make timely decision on interventions. However, its use is generally low in Kenya especially in lower level health facilities. In some cases, health workers use the partograph as a data tool – often filled in after the birth - rather than a clinical decision support tool during the labour process.
