AbstractDuring 1976-1978, improvements were made in the free prenatal care provided by the maternal and child health authority (PMI) of Martinique. Central to these changes was implementation of a program of preventive prenatal care developed in France by one of the authors (EP). Data on all births during 1980-1982 show no significant difference in pregnancy outcomes between women receiving free prenatal care from the government and women receiving private care from obstetricians.
