Unit of measurement



Percentage of births attended by skilled health personnel is the percentage of deliveries attended by health personnel trained in providing lifesaving obstetric care, including giving the necessary supervision, care and advice to women during pregnancy, labour and the post-partum period, conducting deliveries on their own, and caring for newborns.


WHO defines childbirth is a normal physiological process that can occur without complications for most women and children born. Skilled health personnel are only those trained and have equipment and medicines at their disposal. Traditional birth attendants, even if they receive a short training course, are not included. Skilled childbirth assistance is provided by doctors, nurses or midwifes.

Rationale and interpretation

Analyzing this indicator along with other indicators, makes it possible to assess effectiveness of preventive measures, work of local health authorities to protect mothers and children and to develop a number of specific measures to improve health of women during pregnancies and children. Having a skilled attendant at the time of delivery is an important lifesaving intervention for both mothers and babies. Not having access to this key assistance is detrimental to women’s health and gender empowerment because it could cause the death of the mother or long lasting disability, especially in marginalized (distanced) settings.

Method of computation

The indicator is calculated as the number of deliveries (including deliveries in 22-27 weeks) minus the number of deliveries of women who gave birth outside health facilities to the total number of deliveries in health facilities, multiplied by 100%.

Comments and limitations

Direct measurement requires high-quality surveillance systems in which underreporting is negligible and strong health systems so that under-diagnosis is also negligible; otherwise indirect estimates are based on notification data and estimates of levels of underreporting and under-diagnosis.

Quality assurance
Data availability and gaps
