Implementation of Mother and Child Health Project at Prenatal Clinics in Lombardy and integration of newly hired obstetric staff The Mother and Child Health Project (Progetto Materno Infantile [POMI]), part of the National Health Plan 1998-2000, brought about a wide-reaching reform of hospital-based mother and child health care services. Now, 10 years after the project’s implementation, which led not only to innovation in the delivery of health care services but also organizational restructuring, the authors of this review thought it interesting to examine the impact the project has had on prenatal clinic services in Lombardy, a region noted for its prompt enactment of norms that contribute to improving the efficacy and efficiency of action plans in public health care.
