Since the publication of the WHO ANC recommendations, the WHO has developed tools to support their adaptation and implementation. These include the WHO ANC recommendations adaptation toolkit, WHO ANC monitoring framework and the WHO ANC SMART Guideline. Please scroll below for access to all of these tools and their components.
WHO SMART Guidelines support countries to integrate WHO global data and health recommendations into digital systems accurately
They comprise documentation, procedures, and digital health components to support guideline adaptation and implementation through digital systems. There are five knowledge layers with associated products. This new approach to global health in the digital age begins with maternal health and the launch of the WHO SMART Antenatal Care Guidelines.
The third layer (L3) provides code necessary for software developers to incorporate standardized logic from WHO guidelines into digital systems. A standards-based technical implementation guide builds upon the DAKs by mapping its content to value sets and Health Level Seven International (HL7) Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) standards.
