MTN-042B was a cross-sectional chart review study designed to provide an estimate of pregnancy outcome frequency data (term delivery, preterm delivery, still birth) for MTN-042 and other clinical trials involving pregnant women in sub-Saharan Africa. The medical charts of all women delivering or receiving immediate post-partum care (within one week of delivery) at one or two facilities affiliated with each of the 4 sites within an 8-week period were abstracted; once the participant was discharged home and/or seven days from delivery had passed if the participant remained in the facility, the data entry was considered complete.
Data abstraction was completed in March 2020. The primary manuscript was published in PLoS One on March 31, 2021.
