This trial sought to determine if misoprostol is safe and efficacious in preventing postpartum haemorrhage (PPH) when administered by trained birth attendants (TBAs) at home deliveries. The authors found that the administration of misoprostol by trained TBAs at home deliveries reduced the rate of PPH by 24%. The authors note that continued training and skill building for TBAs, along with monitoring and evaluation of program effectiveness, should accompany any widespread introduction of misoprostol.
