DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.419
Synopsis: 
Efforts should be made to improve the post-discharge surveillance system to detect and treat surgical site infection after a cesarean section in Haiti where methicillin-resistant Staphyloccoccus aureus is prevalent and lost-to-follow-up rate is high.

ABSTRACT

Background: Surgical site infection (SSI) after a Cesarean section (CS) increases maternal morbidity and medical costs. No data regarding the epidemiology of SSI after CS are available in settings operated by Médecins Sans Frontières.

Objectives: To determine incidence and independent risk factors for SSI after CS, as well as pathogens associated with infections.
