COPE® (Client-Oriented, Provider Efficient) is a quality-improvement approach originally developed by Engenderhealth for improving family planning services, and subsequently adapted for a range of reproductive health services. 
COPE® for Maternal Health Services was developed by EngenderHealth, with FCI’s support, to help health facility staff assess the quality of maternity care services that they provide and then improve those services. 

See COPE® for Maternal Health Services: Experiences in the Field for a more detailed description of the SCI experience implementing the COPE® method to improve the quality of maternity services.
