Calculation: BEmOC includes parenteral antibiotics, oxytocic/anticonvulsant drugs, manual removal of placenta, removal of retained products with manual vacuum aspiration (MVA), assisted vaginal delivery available 24 hours and 7 days Interpretation: This indicator is a snapshot of the situation at a certain period of time. At the pre-crisis phase, this indicator will indicate the baseline availability of health services. In the early phase after a crisis occurs, this indicator will show the consequences of the crisis (decrease/reduction in availability of health services) when compared to pre-crisis and the needs in term of support to health facilities. At later stages of crisis, trends in this indicator will allow to monitor the response in supporting health services. Limitation: this indicator measures the availability of health services but does not measure access to the service by the popualtion nor the quality of service and is therefore only a proxy for coverage. Quality of services (including trained staff and adequate supplies) should be further appraised.
