PRE-EMPT is excited to announce that we have published nine articles in BMC Reproductive Health in a special issue titled ‘Building community-level resilience for the care of women with pre-eclampsia’. This is our second supplement in BMC Reproductive Health that highlights findings from the feasibility research conducted for the Community-Level Interventions for Pre-eclampsia (CLIP) project regarding community health care worker knowledge, perspectives, practices, and management of pre-eclampsia in rural and semi-rural Pakistan, Mozambique, Nigeria, and India.
