Based on data reported by the Central IBI in June 2020, 974 of 9,296 PMBs were closed, maternal and child health services were temporarily suspended from PMBs who continued to provide services. Most of them did not offer midwifery services following standard health protocols. This study was conducted to describe the evaluation of midwifery service standards during the COVID-19 pandemic.
