 41 completed week 95/25,631 (0.37) 1.0 1.0
 42 completed week 32/6335 (0.51) 1.15 (0.76, 1.71) 1.47 (0.82, 2.62)

  1. aCrude ORs were calculated by multilevel logistic regression model after accounted for cluster effect (facility level, country level, data source -WHOGS & WHOMCS)
  2. bAdjusted for maternal characteristics (age, marital status, education, parity, previous CS); neonatal characteristics (birth weight); facility capacity index score and cluster effect (facility level, country level, data source – WHOGS & WHOMCS)
