As part of the Ending Eclampsia Project and supported by the Pre-eclampsia Technical Working Group, the Population Council developed High Impact Practice (HIP) briefs for three strategies that show promise for improving the prevention, detection, and management of Hypertensive Disorders in Pregnancy (HDPs). HDPs affect 10 percent of women globally and are major contributors to maternal and newborn mortality, morbidity, and disability. Providing essential services and health education for women at all levels of the health system is necessary to improve survival rates and quality of life for those who experience HDPs and their newborns. Inspired by Family Planning HIPs, an approach to evidence sharing was adapted to build consensus around what works for HDPs. More than 40 experts identified and agreed on three key strategies that had the most evidence for improving health outcomes for HDPs including pre-eclampsia. This brief provides an overview of the three HIP strategies for improved prevention, detection, and management of HDPs.
